Ponciano
Ponciano is 49 years old and a widower. He is fortunate in that his children are already adults and able to face life independently. Through hard work, he was able to build a house from solid materials. Ponciano is a real expert in sowing and harvesting cacao. He currently has a lot of weeds growing on his land which prevents the cacao from growing and being harvested in optimal conditions. This means he faces difficulties in making a good profit for his crops. Ponciano has experienced many difficulties throughout his 30 years working as a cacao grower and on this occasion he needs to hire day laborers to naturally weed his trees so that he can avoid experiencing a fall in the quality of his produce. He also plans to grow more similar organic products. With his 18th loan, Ponciano feels confident and comments very happily that he enjoys meeting with his fellow community bank members. Ponciano will use his 1,500 soles to hire as many workers from his area as he can, to weed his land.

Ponciano de 49 años actualmente es viudo y tiene la suerte de tener a sus hijos ya mayores y capaces de afrontar la vida de manera independiente. Con esfuerzo pudo concretar una casa de material noble. Como todo un experto en la actividad de la siembra y cosecha del cacao, él tiene en sus terrenos un exceso de crecimiento de malas yerbas e impide que el cacao crezca y sea cosechado en optimas condiciones para poder contemplar sus ganancias sin inconvenientes. Tuvo muchas dificultades a lo largo de sus 30 años como agricultor del cacao y en esta ocasión necesitará contratar personal externo para realizar una limpieza natural de sus árboles y así evitar que la calidad de su producto disminuya. Asimismo tiene en mente incrementar más cultivos de productos orgánicos similares. Con el préstamo número 18 se siente confiado y comenta muy gustoso que le entretiene reunirse con sus compañeros de su banco comunal. Con los 1,500 soles ya podrá contactarse con la mayor cantidad de jornaleros de su zona y realizar la limpieza de sus terrenos.
