Moises
Moisés, 41, is single and independent. He works as a teacher and as a big producer of cacao in his area. His years of work have given him the possibility of being able to build, little by little, a house of good materials on a piece of land his parents gave to him when they saw how hardworking and honest he was.

He has always been a hard worker with an entrepreneurial spirit. He didn't want to be content with his work as a teacher because of the opportunity to be a grower when his parents transferred some land to him. This is how he has been a cacao grower for 17 years.

Nevertheless, one of the limitations he has is that his plot of land isn't as extensive as he would like. He hopes that in the future some neighbor might offer to sell him some land so he can realize his goal.

Currently it's harvest season and he needs to pay his suppliers in advance for sacks of natural fertilizer and hire day laborers to weed, thus managing to have a quality harvest next season.

He's grateful for the trust with his ninth loan. He also had the opportunity to lead his communal bank on more than one occasion, and he says he'd do it again with great pleasure.

He's going to use the 2,500 soles [PEN] to buy sacks of organic fertilizer and to pay the day laborers who are going to weed the crops.

Moisés de 41 años, es soltero e independiente. Se desempeña, por un lado, como docente y por el otro como un gran productor de cacao en su zona. Sus años de trabajo le han traído consigo la posibilidad de poder construir de a poco una casa de material noble en un terreno que sus padres le cedieron al ver que era muy trabajador y honrado. Él como siempre trabajador y de espíritu emprendedor, pues no quería conformarse con el trabajo de docente, pues la oportunidad de ser productor, pues sus padres le cedieron unas tierras, y es así que hace 17 años se dedica al cultivo de cacao. No obstante dentro de las limitaciones encontradas es que justamente el terreno no es muy extenso como él lo desearía, actualmente esta en temporada de cosecha y es necesario anticipar la compra de sacos de abono natural a los proveedores y contratar jornaleros que ayuden en el deshierbo de maleza y lograr obtener en la próxima temporada una cosecha de calidad. Esperando desde ya que en el futuro algún vecino se ofrezca en vender algún terreno para así cumplir su anhelo. Con su préstamo numero 09 se siente agradecido por la confianza, adicionalmente a ello tuvo la oportunidad de liderar su banco comunal en mas de una ocasión y nos comenta que lo volvería a hacer con mucho gusto. Los 2,500 soles los esta destinando para la compra de los sacos de abonos orgánicos y el adelanto para el pago de los jornaleros que desyerbaran la maleza de sus cultivos.
