Cesar
Cesar is 35 years old and a hard-working man. Together with Julia, his wife of 10 years, he takes care of their 3 children in the house he bought nine years ago.

“I still have a lot of goals to achieve," says Cesar. He still does not have the money he needs to buy his own land for agriculture, but this hasn't discouraged him at all. To the contrary, he works harder every day, saving what he can to buy land in the future.

He now has seven years of experience growing potato, ulluco, New Zealand yam, mashua, barley, broad beans, and peas. He rents land from his community because it costs less and in that way he can help support the growth of the community. After each harvest, he travels into the capital to sell his vegetables. He travels twice a week, taking mashua, peas, and potatoes, which he sells at retail in the "La Parada" market, the largest in the country. Because he is a framer, he also has three horses and three donkeys, which he uses as loading animals to transport fertilizers to the fields. "That way I am less tired," he says.

This will be his sixth loan with MFP and he is happy to know he will have financial support because he is confident that he will progress with his work. He also promises to make his payments on time. He is thankful to be a part of his association because all of its members are responsible people and very supportive. Cesar will invest the money in buying natural fertilizers to spread over the various varieties of potato he grows, including yungay, canchan, andina, and huairo macho.

César, de 35 años es un hombre trabajador. Junto a Julia, su esposa desde hace 10 años; cuidan de sus 3 hijos en la casa que compró hace 9 años.
“Me falta muchos objetivos por cumplir”, afirma. Aún no posee el dinero necesario para comprar sus propios terrenos agrícolas, pero eso no lo desanima al contrario. Trabaja cada día con más esfuerzo, ahorrando lo que pueda para comprar uno. Ya tiene 7 años de experiencia en la siembra de papa, olluco, oca, mashua, cebada, habas y alverja. Cuenta que alquila terrenos de su comunidad, porque cuestan menos y de esa manera apoya en el crecimiento de sus pobladores. En cada cosecha aprovecha sus viajes a la capital para vender sus alimentos. Viaja 2 veces a la semana, llevando maca, alverja y papa; los cuales vende al menudeo en el mercado “la parada”, que es la más grande del país. Como es un hombre de campo, cuenta que posee 3 caballos y 3 burros los cuales utiliza como animales de carga para trasportar los fertilizantes hacia sus sembríos. “de esa manera me canso menos”, comenta.
Este es el sexto crédito con MFP y está contento de saber, que tendrá apoyo financiero, ya que se sentirá seguro de avanzar con su trabajo Por otro lado promete cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas.

César; invertirá el dinero en la compra de fertilizantes naturales para esparcir entre sus cultivos de papa de la variedades “yungay, canchan, andina y huairo macho”.
