Teobaldo
Teobaldo is 46 years old. He lives with the mother of his five children and four of those children. The family lives in its own house that Teobaldo build in his native community near the central jungle region. Teobaldo is a man of principles and values. For the 18 years, he has made a living in agriculture. He has consolidated various plots of land on which he produces coffee, yuca (a potato-like food), and citric fruits. He would like to grow more coffee because it has a high demand and market price. However, he is not yet able to expand his coffee crop, “I have about four hectares of land that the community gave me, so I spend most of the day on those plots,” says Teobaldo.

The main problem Teobaldo identifies is a lack of capital to buy bags of organic fertilizer, seeds, and to pay the wages of contracted laborers to help with the work. He would like to become a wholesaler whose products are bought in other cities, therefore Teobaldo strives to increase his land plots and production.

This is Teobaldo's seventh loan with MFP. Just like with his previous loans, he pledges to make his monthly repayments on time. He is an active and responsible member of the communal bank "Los Clavelitos de Shankivironi." Teobaldo will invest the 1000 soles in the wages of contracted labor to help collect his crops, as well as to buy bags of organic fertilizer, such as guano (bird droppings).

Teobaldo de 46 años, convive con Vaceliza con quien tiene 5 hijos, pero vive con 4 de ellos. Ellos viven en una casa propia que Teobaldo construyó en una comunidad nativa de la selva central. Teobaldo es un hombre de principios y valores. Se dedica a la agricultura desde los 18 años. En todo este tiempo consolidó unos terrenos donde produce café, yucas, frutas cítricas. Pero menciona que el agrada producir más café, porque el precio de venta es mayor y la demanda también le favorece.
“Tengo como 4 hectáreas de terrenos que la comunidad me dio, por eso la mayor parte del día la paso en mis parcelas”, menciona.
El principal problema que tiene es la falta de capital para adquirir bolsas de abono orgánico, semillas y para el pago al personal que contrata para estas labores.
Anhela ser uno de los productores cuya cosecha sea negociada en otras ciudades, es decir un vendedor mayorista, por ello se esmera en aumentar su producción y terrenos. Éste es su crédito número 7 con MFP. Al igual que en los préstamos anteriores se compromete en pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Los Clavelitos de Shankivironi”, donde es un socio activo y responsable.
Invertirá los 1000 soles en el pago del personal que contratará para la limpieza de sus cultivos, además comprará bolsas de abono orgánico como guano de ave de corral.
