Elena
Elena is 44 years old and lives with her husband and children in a house they own. Elena and her husband have worked in agriculture for 20 years, planting the native products of their area like potatoes and oca. They also raise animals. She works hard, so that after several months she can obtain the fruits of her labor. Therefore, she gets up very early to prepare the food and to get her children ready for school. Everyday she feeds her animals and then goes to her plots of land, that are far away, where she looks over her plants to see how they are doing. She then returns to the stable to check on her animals. After several months of this busy routine, Elena and her husband sell what they have harvested and the animals they have fattened. They use what they earn to maintain their family.

For many years this work has been the only source of income for the family. And for Elena, this work will continue to be the main source of income for the family. This is her twelfth loan with MFP. She is one of the oldest members of her communal bank and is happy to have been with them for so long being seen as responsible and easy to work with. The money Elena is requesting will be invested in the purchase of sacks of fertilizer for her next planting.

Elena tiene 44 años, vive con su esposo y sus hijos en su casa propia. Desde hace 20 años, junto a su esposo, se dedica a las tareas de la agricultura, sembrando los productos oriundos de su zona como la papa y la oca, y paralelamente cría animales. Trabaja arduamente para que luego de varios meses pueda obtener el fruto de su trabajo, la recompensa de su ardua labor, por ello se levanta muy temprano para dejar la comida lista y preparar a sus hijos para que vayan a la escuela. Cada día sale a pastear a sus animales, camino a sus lejanas tierras de cultivo donde revisa que sus plantaciones estén bien y regresa para guardar a sus animales en su establo. Después de varios meses de esta recargada rutina, Elena y su esposo irán a vender sus productos cosechados y sus animales engordados, con cuyas ganancias pueden sostener las necesidades de la familia. Este trabajo, por muchos años, ha sido el único sostén de su hogar, y para Elena esta labor seguirá siendo el motor económico de su casa. Este es su doceavo préstamo con MFP, ella es una de las integrantes más antiguas de su banco comunal y se siente contenta de haber permanecido tanto tiempo, siendo reconocida por ser responsable y colaboradora. El dinero que Elena está solicitando será invertido en la compra de sacos de abono y fertilizante para su próxima siembra.
