Nimia
Nimia, 27, lives with her husband Raul, who is also 27 years old. They have 2 children together: Anthony, who is 7, and Farid, who is 1. This family lives in their own home located in a remote area in the Peruvian highlands.

Potatoes, corn, peas and gladiolus flowers are the agricultural products that she has been cultivating for 7 years, with the help of her husband. They own the land that they cultivate, and they also rent other lands to increase their production. When she harvests the peas and flowers she must select them for their quality and size, but this is a simple process. After the harvest she must fertilize with compost to avoid being invaded by pests and to generate the most income when the products are brought to market.

In the future, Nimia is thinking of buying more land so that she could avoid having to rent land. This way she could cultivate in larger quantities to obtain higher earnings to help her get ahead.

This is her second loan with MFP, and she is very happy because she likes to work with the other members of her communal bank, who share her desire to succeed. With the money that she now requests she will buy 2 sacks of pea seeds, so that she can take advantage of the upcoming planting season. In addition, she will use the money to buy a sack of fertilizer and a bottle of insecticide.

Nimia tiene 27 años, vive con su esposo Raúl de también 27 años. Ambos tienen 2 hijos: Anthony de 7 y Farid de 1 año; esta familia vive en su casa propia ubicada en una lejana zona de la sierra del Perú.

Papa, maíz, arveja y flores de gladiolo, son los productos agrícolas que siembra desde hace 7 años con la ayuda de su esposo. Sus terrenos de cultivo son propios y también arrienda otros para incrementar su producción. Cuando cosecha las arvejas y las flores las debe seleccionar por su calidad y tamaño, pero a la vez es sencillo su proceso, pues después de sembrar sólo abona para evitar que sean invadidos por las plagas y al comercializarlas le generan ingresos económicos considerables.
Por eso que para el futuro, Nimia tiene pensado comprar más terrenos que le permitan dejar de lado las chacras arrendadas y así sembrar en mayor cantidad y obtener más ganancias que le permitan salir adelante.

Este es el segundo préstamo que tiene con MFP y está muy feliz porque le gusta trabajar con los integrantes de su banco comunal, quienes comparten el mismo anhelo de superación. Con el dinero que ahora solicita comprará dos bolsas de semilla de arveja, pues desea aprovechar esta campaña de siembra. Además tiene pensado hacer alcanzar el dinero para comprar un saco de fertilizante y una botella de insecticida.
