Fabian
Fabián is 34. He and his partner have three children who are 12, 10 and 8 years old. They live in their own home which is located in the indigenous community of Santa Teresa, Pichanaki (in the central Peruvian jungle).

Fabián has been farming since he was 14 years old. He learned how to grow crops by helping his parents. He currently has five plots of land where he grows coffee and annatto. "I started planting coffee when I was 22. Since then our farming has gone well", he says. The motivation that drives him to continue working is seeing his children become well educated and enjoying better possibilities in life. For this reason, he works hard every day in the fields. His wife supports him unconditionally in weeding their coffee plantation. "Coffee needs more care because weeds always grow and every month we have to weed. If we don't, we don't get good yields". One of Fabián's goals is to expand his production by acquiring more farm land and starting to grow other products such as citrus fruits.

This is Fabián's second loan from MFP. He pledges to make his repayments on time as he did with his previous loan. He feels happy with his community bank "Los Ompicres" because the members have meetings and everybody takes an active part in them.

With this money, Fabián will buy bags of fertilizer for his coffee plantation. He will also pay laborers who will support him in weeding among his crops.

Fabián tiene 34 años, junto a su pareja tiene tres hijos de 12, 10 y 8 años. Ellos viven en su casa propia ubicada en la comunidad nativa Santa Teresa, Pichanaki (selva central).
Desde los 14 años se dedica a la agricultura, por ayudar a sus padres aprendió como producir sus tierras. Actualmente cuenta con cinco parcelas donde cultiva café y achiote. “A los 22 años empecé a plantar café, desde entonces nos va bien con la agricultura”, dice. El motor que lo impulsa a seguir es ver a sus hijos bien educados y con mejores proyectos de vida, por ello se esfuerza todos los días en el campo. Su esposa lo apoya incondicionalmente en la limpieza de su cafetal. “El café requiere más cuidados, porque la mala yerba siempre crece y cada mes tenemos que limpiar, sino no hay buena producción”. Una de sus metas es ampliar su producción con la adquisición de más terrenos de cultivos e incursionar en la producción de otros productos como cítricos.

Este es el segundo crédito que recibe de MFP. Como en el préstamo anterior manifiesta que será puntual en el pago. Por otro lado se siente a gusto con su banco comunal “Los Ompicres”, porque sus socios realizan reuniones y todos participan activamente.
Con el dinero de este préstamo podrá comprar bolsas de fertilizantes para su cafetal. Además pagará a los jornaleros quienes le apoyarán en la limpieza de sus cultivos.
