Epifaneo
Epifaneo, 66, is a widower. His wife died many years ago and this is why he was unable to have children. He lives in a house of his own that he built with much effort in an agricultural annex. Epifaneo’s a man of much strength. His age is no impediment to working in agriculture, a very tiring activity for many. But for him, it’s more than a source of income since he’s spent his entire life in the fields. His main crops are potatoes, peas, gladiola flowers and lima beans. But he states that it’s to his advantage to plant peas and gladiola flowers because of their quick growth and low investment. Epifaneo works alone for the most part so he has horses and donkeys to help him transport his crops. Sometimes, like during harvesting, he has to hire staff.

He hopes to continue with his activity because he enjoys what he does which is why this time he will start a pea and lima bean crop and is asking for your help to do so. This will be his 13th MFP loan. He is very grateful for the economic and educational support all this time. He’s a member of the “Santa Cruz de Patay” communal bank, the province’s oldest, most unified group. He will use 2,500 soles of the loan to buy pea and gladiola seeds and will use the rest to buy organic manure.

Epifaneo de 66 años es viudo. Hace muchos años su esposa falleció y por ello no pudo tener hijos. Él vive en una casa propia, que construyó con mucho esfuerzo en un anexo agrícola. Epifaneo es un hombre de mucha fuerza. Su edad no es impedimento para dedicarse a la agricultura. Una actividad muy cansada para muchos, pero para éste hombre es más que una fuente de ingresos, ya que toda su vida la pasa en el campo. Sus principales cultivos constan de papas, arvejas, flores de gladiolos y habas. Pero manifiesta que le conviene sembrar arvejas y flores de gladiolos, por la rapidez en su crecimiento y por la poca inversión. Epifaneo mayormente trabaja solo. Por eso cuenta con caballos y burros que le ayudan para trasladar sus cosechas. En ocasiones, en el caso de las cosechas, tiene que recurrir a contratar personal.
Él espera continuar con su actividad, por que le agrada lo que hace, por eso esta vez iniciará una siembra de arvejas y habas, para ello solicita de su apoyo. Éste es su crédito número 13 con MFP. Agradece mucho el apoyo económico y educativo en todo este tiempo. Pertenece al banco comunal “Santa Cruz de Patay”, el grupo más antiguo y más unido de la provincia. Con el dinero podrá comprar semillas de arvejas y gladiolos con 2500 soles. Lo restante lo invertirá en la compra de abonos orgánicos.
