Roberto
Roberto is 52 years old. He lives alone, since he is separated from his partner. He has worked in agriculture for more than 30 years, sufficient time to acquire 14 parcels of land, but now he only produces on 8 of them. His principal crops are coffee, cacao, achiote, oranges, and bananas. In the parcels that he doesn't cultivate now, he is thinking of planting ginger. He already has organic fertilizers for that, waiting for the right time. Meanwhile he is harvesting oranges and bananas. In this way he can cover his principal expenses. Now he has to begin the maintenance of the other fields, which already have many weeds interfering with growth.

This is his fifth loan with MPF, and he is grateful for the support offered in the past. For this reason, he says that he will make his payments punctually. He is pleased with the work of his communal bank, because the system for working is in a team.

Roberto will invest the money in paying three people whom he will hire to clean his fields.

Roberto tiene 52 años, vive solo, pues se separó de su pareja.
Hace más de 30 años se dedica a la agricultura, tiempo suficiente para adquirir 14 parcelas de terrenos, pero ahora solo produce en ocho de ellas. Sus principales cultivos son: café, cacao, achiote, naranja y plátano. En las parcelas que no cultiva ahora piensa sembrar kión, para ello ya tiene fertilizantes orgánicos esperando el momento. Mientras tanto va cosechando naranjas y plátanos, de esta manera puede cubrir sus principales gastos. Ahora tiene que iniciar con el mantenimiento de los otros cultivos, que ya tienen mucha maleza interrumpiendo el crecimiento.

Este es su préstamo número 5 con MPF y agradece el apoyo brindado anteriormente, por eso dice que pagará las cuotas con puntualidad. Le agradan las labores con su banco comunal, porque el sistema de trabajo es en equipo.
Roberto invertirá el dinero en el pago de tres personas que contratará para la limpieza de sus cultivos.
