Jovita
Jovita is 25 years old. She lives with her husband Félix, 26 years old, and their two small, restless children: Nicole, age 6, and Edilson, age 3. They live very happily and with the desire to advance themselves in their home, which is their own.


For 7 years, Jovita has helped her husband in the planting of potatoes, peas, olluco (a tuberous vegetable), and beans. Agricultural labor is tiring work, and the charismatic Jovita knows this very well because she dedicates a large part of each day to this activity. From very early on, she has to watch that her fields don't go bad due to a plague or some other cause, and in the afternoon she has to go back to her house to take care of her little ones and cook, which, incidentally, she knows how to do very well. She prepares all types of food, but her specialty is fried trout.


Thus pass the days of this hard-working woman, in the field and taking good care of her family. Jovita dreams of having a restaurant where she can offer her delicious dishes. In addition, she wants to plant larger quantities to increase her productivity and obtain better earnings.


This is the ninth time that she has had a loan with MFP and she is sure of completing all her payments so as not to give a bad impression and not to set back her group, which is made up of responsible and hard-working people. Jovita is thinking of investing the money she is requesting in the purchase of a number of bags of compost and fertilizer. She will also buy pea seeds to plant in larger quantity.

Jovita tiene 25 años, vive en la compañía de su esposo Félix, de 26 años, y sus dos pequeños e inquietos hijos; Nicole de 6 y Edilson de 3 años. Ellos viven muy felices y con ganas de salir adelante en su casa que es propia.

Desde hace 7 años ayuda a su esposo en la siembra de papa, alverja, olluco y habas. La labor agrícola es un oficio cansado y la carismática Jovita lo sabe muy bien, es por eso que dedica gran parte del día a esta actividad. Desde muy temprano debe vigilar que sus tierras no se echen a perder por plagas u otros motivos, y en la tarde debe regresar a su casa para atender a sus pequeños y cocinar; que dicho sea de paso, lo sabe hacer muy bien, pues prepara todo tipo de comidas, pero su especialidad es la trucha frita (pez de río).
Así transcurren los días de esta trabajadora mujer; en el campo y atendiendo bien a su familia. Jovita sueña en tener un restaurante donde pueda ofrecer sus deliciosos platillos, además quiere sembrar en mayor cantidad para aumentar su productividad y obtener mayores ganancias.

Esta es la novena vez que tiene un préstamo con MFP y está segura de cumplir con todos sus pagos para no quedar mal ella y no atrasar a su grupo, que está integrado por personas responsables y trabajadoras. Jovita tiene pensado invertir el dinero que solicita en la compra de varios sacos de abono y fertilizantes, también comprará semilla de alverja para sembrar en mayor cantidad.
