Arístides
Arístides is 46 years old, he is single, and he is a worker. He lives with his sisters and nephews for whom he loves and cares for very much. They own the house that they live in and it is located in Pampas.

During the day he stays in the region because that is where his farmland is located, and he cares for his potatoes, peas, and corn crops. The sales of his crops depend on the price set at the market. For example, if people find that the prices are low, then the crops are sold there. But if there is a demand, then he takes his crops to the capital where he can make a bigger profit.

Additionally, he buys and sells cattle. He now has two cows that he will soon sell. He will also begin to buy bulls and sheep that he will sell in the cattle market in the city.

Right now his project is to improve the quality of his potatoes because he is one of only a few farmers that grow organic potatoes. They contain natural nutrients and are characterized by their large size.

He belongs to the group "La Colpa" and this is his forth loan with MFP. He is thankful for the support that MFP provides because he has access to the capital he needs to be able to work and grow his business. Furthermore, he promises to be punctual with his payments because the association is comprised of responsible people.

Arístides will invest the money from this loan in the purchase of chicken manure (natural fertilizer) for the next planting cycle of his peas and potatoes.

Arístides tiene 46 años, es un hombre soltero y trabajador. Vive en compañía de sus hermanas y sobrinos, a quienes quiere mucho y cuida. La casa donde viven es propia y se ubica en la localidad de Pampas.
Durante el día permanece en la localidad donde se encuentra sus terrenos agrícolas. Ahí cuida de sus sembríos de papa, alverja y maíz. La comercialización la realiza dependiendo el precio de venta del mercado, por ejemplo; si se encuentran baratos, los vende en sus mismos terrenos; pero si hay demanda, los traslada a la capital del país, donde obtiene mayores ganancias.
Adicionalmente se dedica a la compra y venta ganado, ahora tiene 2 vacas que dentro de muy poco venderá, como también comenzará con la compra de toros y ovejas que comercializará a la feria ganadera de la ciudad. Ahora su proyecto es mejorar la calidad de sus papas, por ello es uno de los que siembra una variedad orgánica, que crece con nutrientes naturales, cuya característica es ser grande en tamaño.

Él pertenece al grupo “La Colpa” y éste es su cuarto préstamo con MFP. Agradece el apoyo que le brindan, ya que adquiere el capital de trabajo que necesita para poder trabajar y progresar en su negocio. Además, promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas, ya que los integrantes de su asociación son personas solidarias y responsables.
Arístides invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de guano de gallina (fertilizante natural) para su próxima siembra de alverja y papa.
