Alejandra
Alejandra is 45 years old, and lives with her husband and children in their own house in the land of their birth. She spends every day doing farm work, in particular, caring for her animals, which she sells at her community’s livestock market. Alejandra mainly raises sheep and heifers, but also grows potatoes and other products that are native to the region. Even though her work tends to be difficult, she wants to continue working in the future so she can increase the number of animals she has and thus obtain greater profits when she sells the animals. This is Alejandra’s fifth loan with Kiva partner MFP, and she wishes to stay in her communal bank and continue working with her group so she can see everyone make progress. The money that Alejandra is asking for will be used to purchase bags of fertilizer and to pay the workers she is going to hire to plant the next crop.

Alejandra tiene 45 años, vive con su esposo y sus hijos en su casa propia de su tierra natal. Cada día es una oportunidad para seguir trabajando en sus tareas agrícolas, en especial al cuidado de sus animales, los cuales vende en la feria ganadera de su localidad. Alejandra tiene principalmente ovejas y vaquillonas, además de sembrar papa y otros productos nativos de su zona. Aunque su labor suele ser dura, para más adelante, su deseo es continuar trabajando para aumentar la cantidad de animales que tiene, para obtener mayores ganancias cuando los venda. Este es su quinto préstamo con MFP, y tiene muchos deseos de permanecer en su banco comunal para seguir trabajando con su grupo con miras al progreso de todos. El dinero que Alejandra está solicitando es para la compra de sacos de abono y para el pago del personal que contratará para la próxima campaña de siembra.
