Ignacio
Ignacio is 34-years-old and his spouse is Maribel, 28; they have four children, all minors. This family lives in their own house in an agricultural district.

His parents taught him to work the land since he was a boy and when he started his own family he already had experience in agriculture. He started growing all varieties of potatoes and sells each one of his harvests in the central market in the nation’s capital where profits are better. He proudly says that he used to prefer selling his potatoes in his own city but it’s more profitable if he goes to Lima to do so. Because of this he works hard because he wants to buy a pick-up truck to get around more easily not just going to the capital but also to other cities in the country because Ignacio wants to become a wholesaler.

This is his 7th MFP loan and he promises to be punctual with his monthly installment payments. He belongs to the “Trabajemos Juntos” (Let’s Work Together) communal bank and he feels very grateful for the support within the group. Ignacio will use this money to buy Yungay variety potato seeds (1500 soles) and sacks of fertilizer with the rest of the money.

Ignacio tiene 34 años, su pareja es Maribel, de 28 años, tienen cuatro hijos, todos aun menores de edad. Esta familia habita en su casa propia, en un distrito agrícola.
Sus padres le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra desde niño, por ello, cuando estableció su propia familia, ya tenía experiencia en la agricultura. Comenzó a cultivar papa, de todas las variedades y cada cosecha realizada la comercializa en el mercado central de la capital del país, donde obtiene mejores ganancias. “Antes prefería vender las papas en mi ciudad, pero es más rentable si viajo hasta la ciudad de Lima”, menciona orgulloso. Por esa razón trabaja con esmero porque quiere adquirir una camioneta para trasladarse con mayor facilidad, no solo a la capital, también a otras ciudades del país, ya que Ignacio quiere ser un comerciante mayorista.

Este es su crédito número 7 con MFP, promete ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Trabajemos Unidos”, del que siente agradecimiento por la ayuda dentro del grupo.
Con este dinero, Ignacio comprará semillas de papas de la variedad “Yungay” (con 1500 soles) y bolsas de fertilizantes con lo restante.
