Vilma
Vilma is 32 years old and five days ago she gave birth to her second child. Since she was very young she has been a fieldworker on other people's farms. She now has her own crops of oranges, mandarines, and tangelos which she harvests three times a year. Every fifteen days she collects fruit and takes it to the market in the city. She has a regular buyer named Doña Luchita who is very fair with the price and the weight of the fruit. To take the maximum advantage of her products when the fruit are too small she squeezes them to make popsicles with the juice. Vilma and her eldest daughter happily squeeze the citrus fruits and then bag them and freeze them in her freezer so that they can sell them. This business is very profitable, and with the earnings from popsicle sales they can pay their electricity bill and for their daily food.

This is her sixth loan with MFP and even though she has gone through some economic difficulties she has never been late with a payment beacause as president of her comunnity bank she has to set an example. She will invest the money from the loan to purchase chemical fertilizers for her fields.

Vilma tiene 32 años y hace 5 días dio a luz su segundo hijo. Desde muy joven trabajaba en chacras ajenas como peón, pero ahora tiene sus propios cultivos de naranjas, mandarinas y tangelos, los cuales cosecha tres veces al año. Una vez iniciada la recolección, cada quince días, los lleva al mercado de la ciudad, ella tiene una compradora regular, a quien llaman, “Doña Luchita”, quien es muy considerada con el precio y peso de las frutas. Pero para aprovechar al máximo sus productos, cuando son frutos son muy pequeños los exprime para hacer chupetes con su jugo, los cuales vende. Es por ello que Vilma y su hija mayor alegremente exprimen a diario sus cítricos, lo embolsan y luego congelan en su refrigeradora para venderlos como chupetes. Este negocio le es muy rentable, ya que con las ganancias logran pagar la luz y lo necesario para el menú diario.
Este es su sexto préstamo con MFP y pese a que pasó dificultades económicas nunca ha caído en morosidad, pues como es la presidenta de su banco comunal pregona con el ejemplo. El dinero que ahora solicita lo invertirá en la compra de fertilizantes químicos para abonar sus chacras.
