Walter
Walter is 37 years old. His partner is Erlinda and the couple have three children: a 12 year old, a 7 year old and a one-month-old baby. They live in their own home which is located in the indigenous community of Pucharini (in the central Peruvian jungle).

Walter buys and sells fruit and tubers such as oranges, mandarins, pineapples, avocados, cassava, ginger, and others that grow in the soil in his area. He has been in this business for 5 years and it is going well. "I travel to Lima (the capital of Peru) twice a week with my merchandise and I sell it quickly in the wholesale market", he says. At first he had problems getting his products together. However, over time he managed to gain suppliers who gave him the merchandise on fixed dates. In this way, his business has done well. In addition, he also makes income from his own harvests as he is also a farmer and grows coffee and bananas.

This is Walter's second loan from MFP and he pledges to make his monthly repayments on time. His community bank is called 'Sankori'.

Walter will use this money to acquire crates of fruit and tubers of different types (oranges, pineapples, avocados, papayas, cassava, etc.) He will take them to Lima to negotiate their sale.

Walter tiene 37 años, su pareja es Erlinda, con quien tiene tres hijos de 12 y 7 años y un pequeño bebé de un mes. Ellos viven en su casa propia ubicada en la comunidad nativa Pucharini (selva central).
Walter se dedica a la compra y venta de frutas y tubérculos como: naranjas, mandarinas, piñas, paltas, papaya, yuca, kión y otros que el suelo de su zona produce. Lleva como 5 años en este negocio y le va bien. “Viajo dos veces a la semana hacia Lima (capital del Perú), llevando mi mercadería y la vendo rápido en el mercado mayorista”, menciona. Al inicio tenía problemas para juntar sus productos, pero con el tiempo consiguió proveedores que le otorgaban la mercadería en fechas fijas. De esa manera su negocio marcha bien. Además también obtiene ingresos de sus propias cosechas, ya que se dedica a la agricultura, cultivando café y plátanos.

Este es su segundo crédito con MFP, por eso se compromete en pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales. “Sankori” es el nombre de su banco comunal del que muestra identificación.
Con este dinero podrá adquirir cajones de frutas y tubérculos de distintas variedades (naranjas, piñas, paltas, papayas, yucas, etc), las que llevará hacia la ciudad de Lima para negociarlas.
