Victor
Víctor, 23, lives in the company of his mother, Bernardina, and his brother, Rubén, in his mother’s house located in Tapo.

Despite his young age he worked very diligently in order to have what he now owns: five medium parcels of land as well as a motorcycle and a television set.

His main economic activities are agriculture, corn and potatoes, and he also makes firewood which is where he earns his highest profits. He sells on average 20-thousands in 15 days. This amount varies because it depends on the time it takes him to produce the firewood. “In the summer season I can produce more; the thickness of the trees is also an important factor,” he mentions. He’d also like to study even not having the possibility of doing so because he lives very far from the city but he plans in time to save enough to reach his objective.

He belongs to the “Santa Rosa” communal bank and this is his second MFP loan. He’s sure to reach his goals with this financial help. On the other hand he promises to make his installment payments just like he did with his previous loan. He enjoys being part of his group because all the members are responsible, very supportive people.

Víctor will use the money from this loan to buy 40 trees to make firewood because demand is higher in the summer.

Víctor tiene 23 años. Vive en compañía de su madre, Bernardina, y su hermano, Rubén, en la casa de ella, ubicada en el caserío de Tapo.
A pesar de su corta edad trabajó con ahínco para tener lo que ahora posee; cinco parcelas medianas, además de una moto y un televisor. Sus principales actividades económicas son la agricultura; con la siembra de papa y maíz, y la elaboración de leña, que es donde obtiene mayores ganancias. Vende un promedio de 20 millares en 15 días, esta cantidad varía, ya que depende de la temporada que demore secar la leña. “En esta temporada de verano puedo tener mayor producción, también importa el grosor de los árboles”, menciona. Además, desea estudiar, aunque no tenga las posibilidades, pues vive muy alejado de la ciudad. Pero planea, con el tiempo, ahorrar lo necesario para lograr su objetivo.

Él pertenece al grupo solidario “Santa Rosa” y este es su segundo crédito con MFP. Está seguro de concretar sus planes, con este apoyo financiero. Por otro lado, promete cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas, como en el anterior crédito. Y le agrada ser parte de su grupo porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y muy solidarias.
Víctor invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de 40 árboles para elaborar leña, pues en este mes de verano tiene mayor demanda.
