Ivan
Twenty-six-year-old Iván is a hardworking, helpful, and kind man. His partner is Diana and together they have a three-year-old son. He owns his home, where he lives with his parents, his partner, and his young son.

His business is farming and he has 9 ha of land, of which three are sown with papaya. He has been doing this work for 13 years and since he started he has been working with five laborers who take care of all the field work, from preparing the land for planting to harvesting and selling the produce. He sells the papayas in "javas," or sterilized boxes, as his main clientele are supermarkets or wholesale markets from other cities that demand high quality produce. He likes this work because of the good profits he earns. He tells us that a lot of the time the hot climate keeps him from doing his work well because he gets tired quickly in the field. However, he knows that with hard work and dedication he will get ahead. That is why he is hoping to extend his crops and he also wants to achieve a personal goal related to his technical studies in heavy machinery.

This is his third loan with MFP and he thanks everyone who keeps believing in him by giving him access to financing again, which will help him increase his working capital. He knows that once again he will have to be very responsible and, above all, punctual, and he is happy to belong to his communal bank, as he knows them to be very supportive.

With the requeted 2,000 nuevos soles he will extend his papaya crops, buy boxes for selling, and hire a transport service to deliver his produce.

Su actividad es la agricultura, para eso tiene un terreno de nueve hectáreas de extensión, de las cuales tres, están sembradas con papaya. Desarrolla este trabajo desde hace 13 años y desde que se inició labora con cinco obreros, quienes se encargan de ejecutar todas las funciones de campo, desde la preparación del terreno para la siembra, hasta la cosecha y venta de todos los productos obtenidos. Realiza la venta de las papayas en “javas” o cajones debidamente esterilizados, ya que su principal clientela es de supermercados o mercados mayoristas de otras ciudades que exigen una alta calidad de los productos. Le gusta este oficio por los buenos ingresos económicos que obtiene. Comenta que el clima caluroso origina muchas veces que no pueda realizar bien su trabajo, ya que se agota rápido en el campo, pero sabe que con esfuerzo y dedicación sale adelante. Es por eso que espera ampliar la extensión de sus sembríos y además desea cumplir una meta personal relacionada con sus estudios técnicos en maquinaria pesada.

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, y está contento de pertenecer su banco comunal, ya que ve que son muy solidarios.

Con el monto solicitado, de 2000 nuevos soles, ejecutará la ampliación de sus sembríos de papaya, comprará cajones para la venta y contratará el servicio de transporte de carga para trasladar los productos.
