Gaudencio
Gaudencio is 63 years old and married to Julia. The couple have four children who have already left home to form their own families. Gaudencio and his wife live in their own home, in Huasahuasi district. He is an old man but he has the strength of a young man. He has been farming since he was a child and so he cannot imagine his life far from the countryside. He has 4 hectares of land where he grows different varieties of potatoes. When he harvests them, in approximately 4 to 5 months, he takes them to the coastal towns, traveling hundreds of kilometers in order to guarantee good sales. His sales and contacts on the coast are so favorable that he has also acquired land in this area. This means that he travels frequently. None of this would have been possible without the determination that he always shows in his work and the unconditional support of his wife and children.

This is Gaudencio's 12th loan from MFP and he pledges to make his repayments on time as he has in the past. He is an enthusiastic member of the 'Capital Semillera' community bank and he feels happy to belong to such a solid group.

Gaudencio will invest this money in buying manure and organic fertilizers which he will take to his land on the coast because the fertilizers found in these arid areas are not of the quality he requires.

Gaudencio tiene 63 años, está casado con Julia, con quien tiene cuatro hijos, quienes ya dejaron el hogar para formar sus propias familias. Gaudencio y su esposa viven en su casa propia ubicada en el distrito de Huasahuasi.
Él es un hombre mayor pero con las fuerzas de un joven. Se dedica a la agricultura desde que era niño, por eso no puede ver su vida lejos del campo. Cuenta con 4 hectáreas de terreno donde produce papas de diversas variedades. Al cosecharlas en 4 o 5 meses aproximadamente, las lleva a las ciudades costeras del país, viajando cientos de kilómetros, así asegura buenas ventas. Tan favorable son sus ventas y contactos en la costa, que también adquirió terrenos por esa zona, por eso Gaudencio viaja con frecuencia. Todo esto no hubiese sido posible sin el empeño que siempre muestra en todas sus actividades y el apoyo incondicional de su esposa e hijos.

Este es el crédito número 12 que recibe de MFP por lo que se compromete en pagar con puntualidad las cuotas, como lo hizo antes. Es un socio entusiasta del banco comunal “Capital semillera” y se siente contento de tener un grupo sólido.
Invertirá este dinero en la compra de abono y fertilizantes orgánicos para llevarlos hacia sus terrenos en la costa, ya que en esas zonas áridas los abonos no tienen la calidad que él requiere.
