Ruben
Ruben is 49 years old and single. He has four children, but they live with their mother.

He is a man like no other, every moment is spent doing some activity. "If I don't work I feel useless," he says. He works in agriculture and has six fields of crops. In three of these plots he grows bananas and in the others, fruit and some coffee. He started with this activity independently since he was 20, when he had her first child. Now his children are older and come to his home to help at work. Ruben walks daily several minutes to his fields to remove weeds or to attend to them. His plans are to improve his production, to do so, he will purchase bags of fertilizer to ensure better crops.

This is Ruben's third loan with MFP and he promises to pay on time. The Communal Bank "Las Hormiguitas (The Ants)" is one of the most responsible for payments and participation in meetings and lectures.

Ruben will invest the money of this loan to buy 10 bags of fertilizer (with 1200 soles). The other remaining 1600 soles are to pay to hire laborers for cleaning and buy fertilizer for his crops.

Él es un hombre como pocos, cada instante está haciendo alguna actividad; “si no trabajo me siento inútil”, menciona. Se dedica a agricultura, cuenta con seis terrenos de cultivos. En tres de ellos cultiva plátanos; en los otros, frutas y algo de café. Empezó con esta actividad de manera independiente desde que tenía 20 años, cuando tuvo a su primer hijo. Ahora sus hijos ya son mayores y llegan a su casa para ayudarlo en el trabajo. Todos los días Rubén camina varios minutos hacia sus parcelas para quitarles la maleza o para atenderlas. Sus planes son de mejorar su producción, para ello adquirirá bolsas de fertilizantes para garantizar mejores cosechas.

Este es su tercer crédito con MFP y promete pagar con puntualidad, ya que su banco comunal “Las Hormiguitas” es uno de los más responsables en los pagos y en la participación de las reuniones y charlas educativas.
Rubén invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de 10 bolsas de fertilizantes (con 1200 soles). Los otros 1600 soles restantes serán para el pago de los jornaleros que contrate para la limpieza y abono de sus cultivos.
