Anibal
Aníbal is 53 years old. For the past 15 years, he has lived in the home he inherited from his parents, located in Tambo Paccha. There he built a family with his wife Elena and their six children, of whom just four still live at home.

From the early hours of the day he directs himself to his agricultural fields; he remarks that he is very tired from having to get up so early, but it has served him well in the harvest time. He feels secure in being able to obtain good results from the sales of his food products. "If I don't succeed in cleaning, fertilizing, and maintaining my plantings free of infestations, I can't have a good harvest," he says. He sells his products in the nearest city, because it's easiest for him to move them to that location, since his town is about two hours from one city to the other city. He makes the most of his work in the countryside by raising animals. He has 22 sheep and two cows, from the latter two he gets the milk that they produce for his own consumption, while the sheep are sold to the ranchers in the area by way of obtaining another source of income.

He is a member of the community support group “Productores” and this is his fifth credit with MFP. In all these years he has succeeded in obtaining great benefits from his business, like increasing his milk production and plantings, which resulted in an increase in his profits. For this reason, he promises to be able to make punctual payments on his loan.

Aníbal will invest the money from his loan in buying 40 sacks of natural fertilizers to use on his broad bean fields.

Aníbal tiene 53 años. Desde hace 15 años vive en la casa que heredó de sus padres, ubicada en la localidad de Tambo Paccha. Ahí conformó su familia, junto a su esposa Elena y sus seis hijos, de los cuales ahora sólo vive con cuatro de ellos.

Desde las primera hora del día se dirige a sus terrenos agrícolas, comenta que es muy cansado tener que levantarse tan temprano, pero le resulta satisfactorio, en la temporada de cosecha, pues tiene la seguridad de que podrá obtener buenos resultados en la venta de sus alimentos. “Si no logro limpiar, fertilizar y mantener mis sembríos lejos de plagas, puedo tener una buena cosecha”, afirma. Sus productos los vende en la ciudad más cercana, pues le resulta más fácil trasladarse hasta ese lugar, ya que su pueblo queda a dos horas de la ciudad de la otra ciudad. Aprovecha su trabajo en el campo para criar animales, tiene 22 ovejas y 2 vacas, de estas últimas extrae la leche que producen para su consumo, mientras que las ovejas las comercializa a los ganaderos de la zona, obteniendo de esa manera un ingreso extra.

Él pertenece al grupo solidario “Productores” y este es su quinto crédito con MFP. Durante todos estos años logró obtener grandes beneficios, como mejorar su producción de leche y la siembra, que lograron que aumente sus ganancias. Por ese motivo promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas.
Aníbal invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de 40 sacos de fertilizantes naturales para distribuir en sus cultivos de habas.
