Nelson
Nelson is 31-years-old and his spouse is Yolanda; they have four children who are 14, 12, 9 and 5 years old. They all live together in a rustic house located in an indigenous community in the central jungle.

He’s been working in agriculture since he was a boy so he masters coffee and banana planting. With this duo, he’s able to cover his expenses this way: the coffee harvest produces income once a year which allows him to buy food for the long run; bananas are harvested every two weeks and money from their sale is used for everyday expenses. Nelson is very intelligent; if he wants to acquire other things, he works as a day laborer in others’ parcels. He’s been working at this pace for 10 years. Now, he’s planning to acquire more coffee seeds to set up nurseries and then plant in another parcel he plans to lease.

This is loan #8 from MFP. He belongs to the “Las Hormiguitas” (The Little Ants) communal bank, a group that shares interests. On this occasion, Nelson will start to prune his coffee plants and to do so will pay day laborers he’ll hire for his four parcels. He’ll also buy sacks of manure and fertilizer.

Nelson tiene 31 años, su pareja es Yolanda, con quien tiene cuatro hijos de 14, 12, 9 y 5 años. Juntos viven en una casita rústica ubicada en una comunidad nativa de la selva central.
Él es agricultor desde niño, por eso domina el cultivo de café y plátanos, con esta dupla puede abastecer sus gastos de la siguiente manera: con al cosecha de café obtiene ingresos una vez al año, lo que le alcanza para adquirir alimentos por mucho tiempo; el plátano lo cosecha cada quince días y el dinero de las ventas le sirve para cubrir los gastos eventuales. Nelson es muy inteligente, si quiere adquirir otras cosas también labora como jornalero en parcelas ajenas. Lleva este ritmo de trabajo hace más de 10 años. Ahora piensa adquirir más semillas de café para elaborar viveros y sembrarlos en otra parcela que piensa arrendar.

Este es el crédito número 8 que recibe de MFP. Además pertenece al banco comunal “Las Hormiguitas”, un grupo donde comparte intereses y participa activamente.
Esta vez Nelson empezará a podar sus plantas el café, para ello pagará a los trabajadores que contratará para sus cuatro parcelas. También comprará bolsas de abono y fertilizantes.
