Epifanio
Epifanio, 42, lives with Elinda and they have 4 children. They live in their own house built by Epifanio, which is located in a farming area. Epifanio is a hard worker. He is a farmer and like a good man of the field, leaves his house every morning with his tools, to take advantage of the first rays of sunlight to cultivate his products. He sows potatoes of the “Yungay”, Única” and “Canchán” varieties; these are the most solicited potatoes by his buyers and go for the best price. He knows these details because he’s been a farmer for about 20 years.
For about a month now, he’s been sowing, but because he has parcels of land in different and far away areas, this month will end with him finishing the rest of the sowing. He already has potato seeds, as he selects a percentage from every harvest to use later.
Epifanio is requesting your support to buy bags of organic fertilizer and to conclude the year’s sowing. This is his 6th loan with MFP. He promises to pay his monthly quotas on time. He enjoys his work with the Communal Bank “Dos de Mayo” because his associates are responsible.
He’ll invest the 2500 soles in buying many bags of farm manure and island guano for his potato crops.

Se dedica a la agricultura, y como buen hombre del campo sale todas las mañanas de su hogar con sus herramientas, aprovechando los primeros rayos de sol, para cultivar sus productos. Produce papas de las variedades “Yungay”, “Única” y “Canchán”, que son las más solicitadas y mejor pagadas por los compradores. Estos detalles lo sabe porque lleva como 24 años en la actividad.
Desde hace un mes ya empezó con las siembras, y como cuenta con parcelas en distintas y lejanas zonas, recién este mes culminará con lo que quedó pendiente. Ya cuenta con semillas de papas, puesto que en cada cosecha selecciona un porcentaje para emplearlas más adelante.
Epifanio solicita de su apoyo, para adquirir bolsas de fertilizantes orgánicos y concluir con sus siembras del año. Éste es su préstamo número 6 con MFP. Se compromete en pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales. Le agrada el trabajo con su banco comunal “Dos de mayo”, porque los socios son responsables.
Invertirá los 2500 soles en la compra de varias bolsas de guano de corral y guano de isla, para sus cultivos de papas.
