Juan
Juan is 23 years old and a jovial, responsible and hard-working man. He is single and does not have any children.

He lives alone in a house which he built with much hard-work a number of years ago. He works in agriculture, specifically in growing cassava. He has land which he inherited from his parents. He has been working growing this product for 10 years and relies on the help of two people, who support him with all of the labour.

His current production generates enough income to cover his basic daily expenses. Nevertheless, he considers it insufficient to allow him to invest in other businesses or to extend his cultivation area. For this reason, 9 months ago he started working as a bricklayer. It is going well for him. With the money he obtains from this work, in addition to that obtained from the sale of cassava, he hopes to extend his cultivation area.

This is his first loan with MFP and for this reason he is grateful to all of the people who continue believing in him to obtain this new loan, which will help him to increase his working capital. He knows that he will have to continue be responsible, and above all punctual. He is happy to be a member of his communal bank, as they are very supportive of each other.

With the amount he is asking for of 1,200 nuevos soles, he will buy plummets, trowels and spatulas to carry out his work as a bricklayer more effectively.

Juan tiene 23 años, es un hombre jovial, responsable y muy trabajador. Es soltero y no tiene hijos. Vive solo en la casa que logró construir en base a mucho esfuerzo desde hace algunos años.
Su actividad es la agricultura, se dedica específicamente al sembrío de yuca, tiene un terreno que le heredaron por sus padres. Trabaja 10 años en la siembra de este producto y lo realiza con ayuda de dos personas, quienes le apoyan en todas las funciones de campo. La producción actual que obtiene de su cultivo le genera las ganancias suficientes para sobrellevar los gastos básicos que se presentan diariamente; sin embargo, considera que no es suficiente para poder invertir en otros negocios o para aumentar la extensión de siembra. Es por eso que ha incursionado en el rubro de la construcción trabajando como albañil, desde hace 9 meses, y le está yendo muy bien, con el dinero que obtiene de este trabajo, más lo obtenido de la venta de yuca espera aumentar el área cultivada.

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 1200 nuevos soles, comprará plomada, paletas y espátulas que necesita para desarrollar su trabajo de albañil con mejores resultados.
