Félix is 44 years old and has been married to Nancy for twenty years. They have seven children together, but only three live with them, their youngest daughter being three years old. This family all live in the rustic house they own. Félix is a hard worker and a responsible man. Ever since he got married he has worked with dedication as a farmer. He has the farmland his community gave him and on that land he grows several varieties of potatoes, peas, fava beans, and vegetables like carrots, lettuce, cabbage, and others. However, he considers it more profitable to grow peas and potatoes because of the high demand there is for these products and the profit he obtains by selling them.

"I started out farming two plots of land, and now my production has increased to five," he says proudly. His older children are now independent, so he hires workers to harvest and farm the land. Now he wants to purchase bags of organic fertilizer to start planting potatoes, which is why he is requesting help. This will be his 10th loan with MFP. He says he will pay his monthly installments on time. He belongs to the communal bank Nueva Jerusalén and feels comfortable working as a team. He will invest the requested 2,500 soles in the purchase of twenty bags of organic fertilizer for his future potato crops.

Félix tiene 44 años de edad, hace 20 años se casó con Nancy, con quien tiene 7 hijos, pero solo vive con 3 de ellos, siendo su hija menor de 3 años. Toda ésta familia habita en una casa rústica de su propiedad. Félix es un hombre trabajador y responsable. Desde que se casó se dedica con esmero a la agricultura. Él cuenta con terrenos agrícolas que su comunidad le otorgó, en esas parcelas siembra papas de distintas variedades, arvejas, habas y verduras, tales como: zanahorias, lechugas, coles, entre otras. Pero considera que es más rentable sembrar arvejas y papas, por la demanda que tienen y por las ganancias que obtiene de sus ventas. “Empecé sembrando 2 parcelas, ahora aumenté mi producción a 5, y produzco más de un fruto”, menciona orgulloso.
Sus hijos mayores ahora ya son independientes, por eso contrata personal para cosechar y cultivar. Ahora desea adquirir bolsas de abono orgánico para iniciar una siembra de papas, por ello solicita de su apoyo. Con éste serían 10 préstamos con MFP. Menciona que será puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Nueva Jerusalén” y se siente a gusto trabajando en equipo.
Invertirá los 2500 soles solicitados en la compra de 20 bolsas de abono orgánico para sus futuros sembríos de papas.
