Raul
Raúl is 45 years old and is married to Gisela of 44 years of age. They have five children but they now live with only three of them.

Every day from sunrise to sunset, he works together with his wife growing coffee, citus fruits, plantains, achiote and corn. Agriculture has been his principal source of income since he was 22 and he enjoys his work very much during the months of June, July, August and September because of the good weather during this season. 


Nevertheless, moving heavy sacks of produce is difficult. "Sales are profitable but one has to know on which dates to sow to make the best of the days when there is a good price," he says. In the future he wants to increase production and start planting cocoa, since he has seen that it is crop in high demand and a good price is paid in the city where he sells. 

This is his sixth loan with MFP anf he promises to repay it punctually, as he has previously. Further, he is one of the founding members of the communal bank, for which he has a great respect. 

Raúl will use the loan to buy an electric mower to remove the weeds from his crops.

Raúl tiene 45 años, está casado con Gisela, de 44 años, tienen cinco hijos, pero ahora sólo viven con tres de ellos.
Todos los días, desde que salen los primeros rayos de sol, hasta cuando se oculta, trabaja junto a su esposa cultivando café, frutas cítricas, plátanos, achiote y maíz. La agricultura es su principal actividad económica desde los 22 años y disfruta mucho su trabajo durante los meses de Junio, Julio, Agosto y Septiembre debido al buen clima que se presenta en esa temporada. Sin embargo, trasladar los pesados sacos de productos es lo complicado. “La venta es rentable, solo se tiene que saber en qué fechas cosechar para aprovechar los días de mejores precio”, dice. En adelante quiere incrementar su producción e iniciar con plantaciones de cacao, pues observa que es un fruto muy solicitado y bien pagado en el mercado de su ciudad.

Este es su crédito número 6 con MFP y da su palabra de pagar con puntualidad, como lo hizo anteriormente. Además es uno de los socios fundadores de su banco comunal, por el que siente gran estima.
Raúl invertirá este dinero en la compra de una macheteadora eléctrica para quitar la mala yerba de sus cultivos.
