Rosalina
Rosalina, 27, lives with her husband and children in a leased home. For the last 9 years she has farmed potatoes, an activity she does on her father's land. She travels to sell her crops in the main markets in her area. Her income increases when she sells on the weekend because the rest of the week she takes care of her small son; he parents and sisters help her with her work. To date, her work has been profitable so she is planning to increase potato production in the future so as to sell at wholesale. This is her 3rd loan with MFP and she is enthusiastic about continuing with her work. Besides, she is very happy to be a member of her communal bank. The funds requested will be used to buy sacks of natural fertilizer for her next planting.

Rosalina tiene 27 años, y cuya familia esta constituida por su esposo e hijos y juntos viven en una casa arrendada. Desde hace 9 años que se dedica al cultivo de papa, actividad que labora en las tierra de su padre, y de la producción que obtiene lo lleva a vender en las principales ferias de su localidad, ofreciéndolo de manera ambulante. Sus ingresos aumentan cuando vende los fines de semana, ya que el resto de días se dedica a su pequeño hijo, por lo que sus padres y hermanas la ayudan en tal labor. Hasta el momento su trabajo le ha sido rentable, por lo que esta planeando en el futuro producir más cantidad de papas para vender al por mayor. Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, y esta muy entusiasmada de continuar adelante con su trabajo, además que esta muy contenta de pertenecer a su grupo comunal. Con el préstamo que solicita lo invertirá en la compra de sacos de abono para su siguiente cultivo.
