Jaime
Jaime, 50, is married to Juana and has four children, but only the youngest, Marieni, lives with them. They bought their house 20 years ago. His motto is: "Working with great care is important." Every day he heads for his fields, where he grows potatoes, olluco, oca, and mashua [Andean tubers], pulls weeds, and fertilizes so that each harvest will be bountiful. His wife always goes with him to care for the animals (sheep, alpaca, and horses) that are kept in the high country. "The animals adapt to the altitude, and there are natural pastures where they can eat better," he contends. They plan to increase their herd by buying more alpacas because he says selling these animals and their wool generates higher profits.

He belongs to the group “Los quinuales.” This is his second loan cycle with MFP, where he feels he has developed skills and received help to grow his business. He promises to make his payments on time. He also likes working with his group because the members are responsible and caring. Jaime will use this loan to buy 40 sacks of organic fertilizer for his potato plantings.

Jaime tiene 50 años, está casado con Juana y tienen cuatro hijos, pero ahora solo viven con Marieni, la última. La casa donde viven la compraron hace 20 años.
Su dicho es: “Lo importante es trabajar con mucho esmero”. Todos los días se dirige a sus campos de cultivos donde tiene papa, olluco, oca y mashua, extrae la maleza y nutre con fertilizantes para que en cada cosecha le brinden buenos frutos. Además, siempre va acompañado de su esposa, quien se dedica a cuidar de sus animales (ovejas, alpacas y caballos), a los que cuida en su estancia que se ubica en la zona alta, “el clima de los animales se adapta en las altura y ahí encuentran pastos naturales para que puedan alimentarse mejor”, afirma. Por ello está planeando comprar más alpacas, para incrementar su ganado, confiesa que obtiene mejores ganancias en la venta de estos animales, como también en la venta de su lana.

Él pertenece al grupo solidario “Los quinuales” y este es su segundo crédito con MFP, donde se siente desarrollado, ya que obtiene la ayuda para progresar en su negocio. Por ello promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas. Además le gusta trabajar con su grupo, pues son personas responsables y solidarias.
Jaime invertirá este dinero en la compra de 40 sacos de fertilizantes naturales “de granja” para nutrir sus sembríos de papa.
