Carlos
Carlos is 34 year-old hardworking man who appreciates sincerity and good manners. He lives with his partner, Dalila, and their 5 year-old son. They own their home.

He cultivates manioc on 25 hectares of land (approx. 61.8 acres) he bought 11 years ago, which is the length of time he has been doing this work. He currently has 5 hectares (approx. 12.4 acres) producing manioc. He also cultivates other crops seasonally, such as rice and corn. In order to get the work done, he contracts the services of five workers during the harvest. The number of people he hires depends on the work he needs to get done in the fields. He sells his crops wholesale in sacks at the main market in the city. He is likely to rent some of his land to other farmers who need to plant their crops.

This is his third loan from MFP and he is grateful to all the people who continue to have confidence in him and who enable him to obtain funding again that will help him to increase his working capital. He knows that he will have to be very responsible again and above all very punctual in his repayments. He is pleased to belong to his communal bank because he sees that the members are very supportive.

With the sum requested, S/. 1,500, he plans to invest in the cultivation of one more hectare (approx. 2.5 acres) of manioc to increase his production. For that he will contract the necessary labor force and purchase fertilizer and some tools to replace those he has now.

Carlos tiene 34 años, es un hombre trabajador y empeñoso, le agrada la sinceridad y el trato amable. Su pareja es Dalila, viven en su casa propia en compañía de su pareja y su hijo de 5 años de edad.
Su actividad es la siembra de yuca. Para desarrollar esta función cuenta con un terreno de 25 hectáreas que compró hace 11 años, tiempo que viene realizando esta labor. Tiene 5 hectáreas que actualmente están en producción de yuca, adicionalmente siembra, por temporadas, otros productos, como arroz o maíz. Para cumplir su trabajo contrata el servicio de 5 obreros en etapa de cosecha, la cantidad de personal que contrata depende de la función que se tiene que realizar en el campo. La venta de sus productos la realiza en sacos, al por mayor, en el mercado principal de la ciudad. Eventualmente alquila algunas hectáreas de su terreno a otros agricultores que requieren sembrar sus cultivos.

Este es su tercer préstamo con MFP, por lo tanto agradece a todas las personas que siguen confiando en él para acceder nuevamente a este financiamiento que le ayudará a aumentar su capital de trabajo. Sabe que nuevamente tendrá que ser muy responsable y sobre todo muy puntual, está contento de pertenecer su banco comunal, ya que ve que son muy solidarios.

Con el monto solicitado, de 1500 nuevos soles, tiene planes de invertir en la siembra de una hectárea más de yuca para ampliar su producción. Para ello contratará el personal necesario y comprará fertilizantes y algunas herramientas para reemplazar las que tiene actualmente.
