Gladys
Gladys, 37, lives with her husband and two sons, 16 and 17 years old, in their own house. She has been a farmer for the past 15 years and grows wheat, barley, broad beans, and potatoes. Every day she inspects her farmlands checking on her plants and, once harvest time is here, she needs the help of all her family and hires a few laborers to bring in and bag the crops. On the weekend, the sacks of produce are taken to the local market to sell. This is the way she gets profits she has been waiting six months to get. Gladys is very happy in this work because it allows her to enjoy the scenery and, even though the work is very hard, this is her way of life. For the next few years she would like to plant even larger spreads to continue selling her products and earning better profits. This is the ninth loan MFP has granted Gladys. She is one of the most persevering members of her communal bank and one who is always promoting responsible labor. On this occasion, she renews her commitment to repay on time so that she will be able to continue receiving future loans. With the funds requested now she will buy sacks of natural fertilizer and rent a tractor to till the soil and spread the seed.

Gladys tiene 37 años, vive con su esposo y sus 2 hijos de 16 y 17 años en su casa propia.
Desde hace 15 años se dedica al cultivo de la tierra; sembrando trigo, cebada, habas y papa. Cada día hace un recorrido por sus chacras observando sus plantas, y una vez llegada la época de cosecha necesita el apoyo de toda su familia y también contrata a peones para recolectar y envasar sus productos en costales, los cuales son llevados el fin de semana a la feria comercial de su localidad.
De esa manera obtiene las ganancias que se hicieron esperar alrededor de 6 meses, Gladys está muy contenta de realizar este trabajo, porque le permite disfrutar del paisaje y aunque el trabajo sea muy fatigoso esa es su forma de vida.
Para los próximos años su deseo es sembrar mayores extensiones de tierra para poder seguir vendiendo sus productos y obteniendo mejores ganancias.

Esta es la novena oportunidad en que Gladys tiene un crédito con MFP, ella es una de las socias más perseverantes de su banco comunal y la que siempre promueve el trabajo responsable. En esta ocasión, renueva su compromiso de pago para continuar recibiendo futuros créditos. Con el dinero que ahora solicita comprará sacos de abono y contratará un tractor para remover sus terrenos y depositar la semilla.
