Yuri
Yuri lives in the community of San Agustín and is a person whose leadership makes him really stand out from his family. He has two children, Roy (14 years old) and Miky (11) but they do not live with him. Yuri owns a home built out of wood. After working some time growing organic cocoa, he decided to head down a more dynamic and commercial path and became a middle man, selling agricultural products from his community.

He has now been doing this for three years and has made himself well-known to the producers in the area. He now buys various products from these local producers, such as cocoa, coffee, annatto, turmeric and barbasco, which he stores in a space in his home.

He says that he really enjoys his work because he does not feel forced into and it is modest work. He must contact the bigger wholesalers from the city so that he can sell the products for a fair price, so that the products he is selling are profitable for the producers. He would like some financial backing so that he can move his business forward, earn back his investment in the short-term, and make a profit.

In the long-term, his aim is to buy land in the city because his children will soon finish high school and, like any good father, he would like to support them with a good further education and their own home. Yuri is working very hard for this.

With 3000 Nuevo Soles, he will persist with his business by buying agricultural products in his own town, so that he can sell them to bigger wholesalers in the big cities.

Yuri radica en la comunidad de san Agustín, es una persona cuyo liderazgo le han valido para sobresalir entre su familia de forma acelerada. Tiene dos hijos Roy de 14 años y Miky de 11, pero no viven con él. Es poseedor de una vivienda construida a base de madera. Al cumplir un buen tiempo como agricultor de cacao orgánico decidió optar por un camino más comercial y dinámico desempeñándose como acopiador de productos agrícolas en su comunidad.
Lleva desempeñando su trabajo desde hace 3 años, tiempo que ha logrado hacerse muy conocido por los productores de su zona a quienes adquiere diversos productos como cacao, café, achiote, palillo y barbasco para almacenarlos en un almacén habilitado en su domicilio.
Comenta que le agrada mucho su trabajo ya que es menos forzoso mas no algo sencillo, puesto que debe contactar con acopiadores mayores de la ciudad para obtener precios justos para los productos que comercializa beneficiando así tanbien a los productores de su localidad. Desea contar con capital de respaldo para llevar adelante su actividad logrando así recuperar su inversión en corto plazo y con ganancias adicionales.
Sus objetivos a largo plazo apuntan la compra de un terreno en la ciudad puesto que sus hijos están a puertas de culminar sus estudios secundarios y como buen padre desea brindarles una educación superior justa , que mejor que lo hagan a futuro en una casa propia para el cual se encuentra trabajando muy duro. Con los 3,000 nuevos soles proseguirá con las actividades de su negocio con la compra de los productos agrícolas de su localidad para luego vendérselo a los acopiadores mayores de las grandes ciudades.
