Feliciano
Feliciano is 67 years old and is married to Eusebia, with whom he has three daughters, but he only lives with the youngest one who is 18. They live together in their own home in an agricultural district. For the last 20 years, Feliciano has worked in agriculture. Now he has his own lands in various plots, ones that he obtained thanks to his hard work over more than 40 years. He grows potatoes, peas, lima beans, lettuce, spinach, carrots and more vegetables. "The planting of vegetables is profitable, each basket of spinach sells for 120 soles," he mentioned.

At his age, although he continues working his land, even though it is very hard work, he sometimes contracts with operating personnel to accelerate the work. Moreover, he says that agriculture needs a lot of investment, especially in the purchase of fertilizers, seeds, and payment for workers. Because of this he is requesting your help to be able to buy bags of organic fertilizers, now that a month has passed since he planted potatoes and peas that need fertilizers. This is his 6th loan with MFP. He feels content with the support that it has brought him over time. He gives his word that he will be punctual with his monthly payments. WIth this money he will buy 30 sacks of organic fertilizers for his crops of potatoes and peas that he thinks he will harvest in December.

Feliciano de 67 está casado con Eusebia, con quien tiene 3 hijas, pero sólo vive con la menor de 18 años. Ellos habitan una casa propia en un distrito agrícola. Desde los 20 años, Feliciano se dedica a la agricultura. Actualmente cuenta con terrenos propios en varios anexos, los que obtuvo gracias a su trabajo arduo durante más de 40 años. Siembra papas, arvejas, habas, lechugas, espinacas, zanahorias y demás hortalizas. “La siembra de hortalizas es rentable, cada canasta de espinacas la vendo a 120 soles”, menciona.
A su edad, aún continúa labrando la tierra, a pesar de ser una labor muy cansada, por eso a veces contrata personal operario para agilizar su trabajo. Además dice que la agricultura necesita mucha inversión, especialmente para la compra de fertilizantes, semillas y pago de personal.
Por eso está vez requiere de su ayuda para adquirir bolsas de abonos orgánicos, ya que hace un mes sembró papas y arvejas que necesitan fertilizantes. Éste es su crédito número 6 con MFP. Se siente contento por el apoyo que se le brinda durante todo este tiempo. Da su palabra de ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Con el dinero podrá comprar 30 bolsas de abono orgánico para sus cultivos de papas y arvejas que piensa cosechar en diciembre.
