Leoncio
Leoncio is 51 years old. He lives in the house that he bought 36 years ago. Now he lives with only one (David) of his four children. He was widowed 4 years ago, so since then he no longer receives the help of his wife, who always accompanied him during the long workdays of harvesting and planting. He feels a little sad when he talks about her. He affirms that his love for his children and their happiness motivate him to move forward. Thanks to his work he managed to acquire 10 hectares of his own agricultural land. He plants only 4 hectares with potatoes, beans, and corn, and the others he gave to his children. Now he works with the help of laborers, whom he hires when he needs help. He very much likes to work in the fields, and for this reason he feels very happy at each harvest, since he obtains the reward for so much work.

He belongs to the communal bank "Puntaman puririsum Sachamarca," which means "We go forward Sachamarca" (Sachamarca is the name of a local stream). This is his eighth loan from MFP, and he very much likes the work that he does in his group, because at every meeting he learns new ideas for his crops, since everyone helps each other and cooperates. For this reason he promises to be punctual in making his payments.

Leoncio will invest this money in the purchase of 200 sacks of natural fertilizer for the next planting of potatoes of the varieties "Canchan" and "Unica."
