Arturo
Arturo, 27, lives with Mari, the mother of his two children: Gaby, age 7, and Michez, age 3. The family lives in their own home, located in a native community in the central forest.

Arturo is a very enthusiastic young man. He works in agriculture. Thanks to his parents and the community, he has three parcels of farm land where he grows coffee, bananas, and corn. "These three products are profitable. It depends on how I negotiated and worked, but I work harder growing coffee," he says. Arturo has been doing this for about nine years, and he says that the most difficult part of his job is getting his crops to the city.

He invests a lot of money in freight, organic fertilizer, paying workers and others. However, his results from the harvests are satisfactory. He has to fertilize his crops every six months, to ensure their growth and the formation of the grains. This is why this time he is looking for support to get organic fertilizer. He likes his work and his plan for the future to increase his planted fields. This is the second time Arturo has received a loan from MFP, and he is firmly committed to making his payments on time.

"Los productores Yaneshas" is his communal bank and he is glad to have responsible co-members. He likes the idea of saving and the growth of the members as a team. He will invest the money in 15 bags of organic fertilizer to fertilize the land where he grows coffee. That way he is sure to have a good harvest next year.

Arturo de 27 años, convive con Mari, la madre de sus 2 hijos: Gaby de 7 años y Michez de 3. Esta familia vive en una casa propia ubicada en una comunidad nativa de la selva central.

Arturo es un joven de carácter entusiasta. Se dedica a la agricultura. Gracias a sus padres y a la comunidad, cuenta con 3 parcelas de terrenos de cultivos donde produce café, plátanos y maíz.
“Estos 3 productos son rentables, depende como los negocie y trabaje, pero me esmero más en el cultivo de café”, dice. Arturo lleva como 9 años en esta actividad, y menciona que lo más difícil de su trabajo es trasladar sus cosechas hasta la ciudad.
Invierte mucho dinero en el flete, fertilizantes orgánicos, pago de jornaleros y otros, si embargo sus resultados en las cosechas son satisfactorios.
Tiene que abonar sus plantas cada 6 meses, para asegurar su crecimiento y formación de los granos, por eso esta vez solicita de su apoyo para adquirir abonos orgánicos.
Le gusta su trabajo y en sus planes futuros está ampliar sus sembríos. Es la segunda vez que Arturo recibe un préstamo de MFP, por eso muestra firmeza al mencionar que será puntual en el pago de las cuotas. “Los productores Yaneshas”, es su banco comunal y se siente contenta de tener socios responsables. Le agrada la idea de los ahorros y el crecimiento de los socios en equipo.
Invertirá el dinero en la compra de 15 bolsas de abonos orgánicos para fertilizar las tierras del café. Así asegurará una buena cosecha para el próximo año.
