Faile
Faile is 53 years old. He separated from the mother of his children ten years ago. He has four children who have already left home. Faile lives alone in his own home which is located in the indigenous community of Pucharini (central Peruvian jungle).

Faile has been farming since he was 18. His work is hard. He starts by getting rid of weeds in order to begin any planting work. He currently grows coffee, bananas, corn, cassava and ginger. He has seven plots of land where he grows these crops. Over the years he has been farming, he has had a lot of satisfaction as well as some failures. He remembers that, twelve years ago, he lost all his corn and ginger crop because of pests. This experience taught him to take precautions and be prepared for a lack of rain, or insects. Since then, his harvests have given him better results. He now plans to start sowing more corn and bananas and he needs several bags of organic fertilizer and seeds to do this.

This is Faile's eleventh loan from MFP. He is very grateful for all the support he has received over the years. He is a member of the 'Sankori' community bank and he feels happy with his group because of the coordinated work of its members.

Faile will invest the money from this loan in buying corn seeds, banana plants and bags of fertilizer so that he can start his planting.

Faile tiene 53 años. Hace 10 años que se separó de la madre de sus hijos, tiene cuatro, quienes ya dejaron el hogar. Él vive solo en su casa propia ubicada en la comunidad nativa Pucharini (selva central).
Desde los 18 años se dedica a la agricultura. Su trabajo es arduo, empezando por la limpieza de la mala hierba para iniciar cualquier plantación. Actualmente produce café, plátanos, maíz, yuca y kión. Cuenta con siete parcelas de terrenos donde cultiva estos productos. En todos sus años como hombre del campo ha recibido muchas satisfacciones, como también ciertos fracasos. Recuerda que hace 12 años, toda su producción de maíz y kión se perdieron por causa de una plaga. Esa experiencia le ha enseñado a tomar provisiones y estar preparado para la falta de lluvias o de los insectos. Desde entonces sus cosechas le dan mejores resultados. Ahora piensa volver a sembrar más maíz y plátanos para ello requiere varias bolsas de abonos orgánicos y semillas.

Este es el crédito número 11 que recibe de MFP. Está muy agradecido por todo el apoyo brindado en todos estos años. Pertenece al banco comunal “Sankori”, del que se siente contento por el trabajo coordinado con sus socios.
Invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de semillas de maíz, mamones de plátanos y bolsas de fertilizantes, para iniciar una siembra.
