Edith
Edith, 34, lives with her husband and two sons, 14 and 10 years old, in her own house. All of her life she's been a farmer, principally growing potatoes, which she takes to the urban areas of her location to sell. With her savings she was able to acquire two vehicles that are used for passenger transport. For the last year her husband has driven one of them and they hired a driver for the second vehicle; both cover an interprovincial route. This earns for them income in addition to what they get from farming which is enough to meet household needs. In transport, one works every day and there is no specific day off, unless one of the vehicles might need some type of maintenance. This work has allowed them to meet household expenses and even have some savings. For this reason, she wants to acquire yet another vehicle. This is her ninth loan with MFP and she is very happy to be part of a communal bank because it is a good experience on top of the savings system they have. This time the requested funds will be used to buy sacks of natural fertilizer and potato seed for her next planting cycle.

Edith tiene 34 años, vive con su esposo y sus 2 hijos de 14 y 10 años, en su casa propia.
Toda su vida se ha dedicado a la agricultura, sembrando principalmente la papa, la cual lleva a vender a la zona urbana de su localidad, y con los ahorros que logró conseguir adquirió dos carros para dedicarse al transporte. Por ello, desde hace un año su esposo maneja uno de ellos realizando transporte de pasajeros, y para el otro han contratado a un chofer; ambos cubren una ruta interprovincial.
De esta manera obtienen ingresos extras a la agricultura, lo necesario para sostener a su familia. En el transporte, se trabaja todos los días y no existe un día especifico de descanso, salvo se necesite hacer un mantenimiento mecánico de los carros. Este trabajo le ha permitido solventar los gastos familiares y ahorrar, por lo que está decidida en adquirir otro carro más.

Esta es la novena oportunidad en que tiene un crédito con MFP, ella está muy contenta de ser parte de su banco comunal, ya que es una buena experiencia, además del sistema de ahorros que tienen. Esta vez, el dinero que solicita será destinado a la compra de sacos de abono y semilla de papa para su próxima campaña de siembra.
