Lauro
Lauro is 38 years old and has been separated for two years. He lives alone in a rental house. His three children live with his ex-wife. Working the soil and caring for plants is part of his life. Since his childhood he has carried out these jobs, but last year he wasn't able to do the planting he wanted because of an increase in fertilizer prices. The price rose to 215 soles per sack where it had been 60 soles. Because of this difficulty, the money he had for that investment was not enough to cover the cost. Since then he has felt a little distressed. But now that the fertilizer prices are at 95 soles he his happy again, and his desire to farm has returned. He plans to plant two hectares of bananas. His marital problems affected him a lot in the beginning, and he occasionally missed work because of his drinking, but now he is feeling more motivated. In time, he hopes to become a great farmer. This is his fifth loan with MFP, and he has always collaborated in all of the activities that his communal bank offered. He has always been responsible about making his payments on time. He is requesting money to buy banana seedlings. Since he is planting two hectares, he will need two thousand plants.

Lauro tiene 38 años de edad, está separado desde hace dos años, vive solo en una casa alquilada, mientras que sus 3 hijos viven con su ex esposa. El labrado de la tierra y el cuidado de la plantas es parte de su vida, desde su niñez ha realizado estos trabajos, pero el año pasado no logró sembrar como anhelaba debido a la alza de los abonos que llegaron a costar 215 soles por saco de lo que costaba 60 soles, debido a este obstáculo el dinero que tenía para esa inversión no le alcanzó; desde entonces se siente un poco mortificado. Pero ahora que ha bajado los precios de los fertilizantes a 95 soles nuevamente la alegría toca a su corazón y sus anhelos regresaron, se está proyectando para sembrar dos hectáreas de plántanos. Sus problemas conyugales a un inicio le habían afectado mucho y en ocasiones no realizaba sus trabajo como era bebido, pero ahora ya se siente más motivado, y con el tiempo espera convertirse en un gran agricultor. Este es su 5to préstamo con MFP, y en todo este tiempo ha colaborado en todas las actividades que realiza su banco comunal, y más aun en sus compromisos de pagos siempre cumplió de acuerdo a sus cronogramas con mucha responsabilidad. El dinero que solicita es para la compra de plantitas de plátanos, ya que sembrará 2 hectáreas y para ello necesita dos mil plantas.
