Adela cuenta 32 años de edad, vive con su pareja y padre de sus 3 hijos. Junto a su esposo se dedica a sembrar papas y alverjas, durante estos meses de cosecha hay bonanza por lo que trata de acumular sus ingresos económicos, para utilizarlos como capital en los próximos cultivos de papa. A las 4.00am Adela inicia sus labores de ama de casa, después, a las 9.00am alista sus viandas donde carga el almuerzo de su esposo y el suyo para ir a trabajar a sus chacras. En esta época la siembra de papas les ha sido muy rentable, porque en el mercado les han cotizado a un buen precio, lo que la anima a seguir sembrando, las papas que nos muestra en la foto son de un tamaño seleccionado que tienen un precio mayor, y generalmente son enviados a los mercados de Lima por ser mucho más rentables. Adela está muy feliz con su actividad, tiene grandes anhelos de progresar a base de la agricultura y brindarles comodidad a su familia e hijos. Este es su 9no crédito con MFP, y que en todo este tiempo ha demostrado ser una cliente muy eficiente y puntual en sus pagos. El dinero que ahora viene solicitando es para mandar a arar con tractor su chacra descansada (sin producir) de hace varios años, y con otra parte comprará insecticidas contra los gusanos.
