Emilio
Emilio is 44 years old. His partner is Sonia and the couple have five children. They live together in a house that Emilio worked hard to build. It is located in San Antonio, a community with fertile land and a cold climate.

Emilio has been farming for 26 years. With the support of his wife, he has managed to carry out all the tiring work involved in tending, pruning and harvesting their crops. He sows potatoes, peas, broad beans and barley. The rewards he obtains from the farm work are good when prices are favorable. However, there are times when the weather is not favorable. As he lives at high altitude, frosts attack his crops. One year he lost an entire harvest. Emilio's immediate goal is to improve his potato yields this year because forecasts suggest that prices will be better than they were last year. However, Emilio considers himself to be a specialist in growing peas and so he will be sure to look after this crop too.

This is Emilio's ninth loan from MFP. He re-affirms his loyalty to the entity because of the opportunity they have given him to develop his business. He is also grateful for the educational talks that he frequently receives.

Emilio will invest this money in buying two bags of pea seeds (1,200 soles). He will use the rest to buy bags of fertilizer for his potatoes and peas.

Emilio tiene 44 años, su pareja es Sonia, con quien tiene cinco hijos. Ellos viven juntos en la casa que Emilio construyó con mucho esfuerzo y se ubica en el anexo de tierras fértiles y clima frío de San Antonio.
Hace 26 años que él se dedica a la agricultura. Con el apoyo de su esposa ha logrado cubrir todo el trabajo cansado que significa cuidar los cultivos, podarlos y cosecharlos. Siembra papas, arvejas, habas y cebada. La recompensa que obtiene del campo son buenas cuando los precios son favorables, pero hay días en que el clima no le favorece, por ejemplo, por ubicarse a una altitud considerable, las heladas atacan sus cultivos. Hubo un año en que llegó a perder toda una cosecha. Entre sus metas próximas está mejorar su producción de papas para este año, ya que los pronósticos dicen que los precios serán mejores que el año pasado. Pero Emilio se considera un especialista en el cultivo de arvejas, así que no descuidará una próxima siembra de este producto.

Este es su préstamo número 9 con MFP. Reafirma su fidelidad hacia la entidad por la oportunidad de desarrollo que le brinda, además de las charlas educativas que recibe con frecuencia.
Invertirá este dinero en la compra de dos bolsas de semillas de arvejas (con 1200 soles), lo restante será para bolsas de fertilizantes para sus cultivos de papas y arvejas.
