Celso
Celso, 41, is a hard worker and very determined to be successful. He is single and independent, and lives in a rented house with four friends who all share the expenses.

He is a farmer, in association with his father who has a fruit and vegetable cropland. He has been in this business for nearly seven years and enjoys it, since he shares in his father's family business. This way he feels he supports the family and also generates his own income. He says what he dislikes is when crops suffer from disease, as this can generate losses and decrease production. But he combats it in time, even though it is expensive. He plans to open a restaurant in the city, since cooking is one of his main passions. But for now he will continue saving toward that goal.

This is his third loan through MFP and he is happy and grateful for the final support he is receiving to continue. He also likes his loan counselor and the members of his communal bank, most of whom are neighbors he knows and considers to be responsible.

He will use the 1,800 PEN to invest in the business he has jointly with his father, since the time is drawing near to begin planting for the new production season.

Celso tiene 41 años, es un hombre trabajador con muchas ganas de sobresalir. Es soltero e independiente, vive en una casa alquilada en compañía de cuatro amigos, con quienes comparte los gastos mutuamente.

Él se dedica a la agricultura, para eso se ha asociado con su padre, quien tiene un terreno donde cultivan frutos y verduras. Lleva en este negocio cerca de 7 años y le gusta, pues comparte con su padre el negocio familiar y además siente que los apoya y lograr generarse un ingreso económico. Comenta que lo que no le agrada es cuando alguna plaga se presenta en sus sembríos, ya que puede generar pérdidas o disminución en la producción, pero las combate a tiempo, aunque eso le genere más gastos. Tiene planeado abrir un restaurante en la ciudad, ya que el arte culinario es una de sus principales pasiones, pero por el momento continúa ahorrando para cumplir dicha meta.

Este es su tercer préstamo con MFP y se siente contento y agradecido por el apoyo financiero que le brindan para continuar. También está a gusto con su asesor de crédito y con los miembros de su banco comunal, pues conoce a sus integrantes, que en su mayoría son sus vecinos, y los considera personas responsables.
Con el monto solicitado, de 1800 nuevos soles, invertirá en el negocio que tiene en sociedad con su padre, pues se acerca la fecha de siembra de semillas para una nueva producción.
