Haydee
Haydee, 39, is an enterprising woman. She is married to Francisco, 54, and they have 5 children; the three youngest, Emily, 10, Andelina,3, and Gresly, 1, live with them still. They own their own, centrally located, home in Tarma province.

For the last 11 years she and her husband have farmed potatoes, corn, peas and broad beans. Her eldest daugheter, although she does not live with them anymore, helps. Despite having to care for her two small children, she comes to work the fields daily because she likes to see them clean and rich in foliage.

Haydee considers her work to be quite profitable because it allowed her to meet imprtant goals in her life. She states: "I plant because, farming allowed my to support my household, to buy my home, educate my children and purchase more farmlands. Besides, I'm the first one to taste the crops and insure their quality and flavor."

For the future, she plans to plant larger amounts so that her profits will be higher; she is even enlarging her home so that she can raise small animals to sell.

This is her first loan with MFP. She pledges to her fellow members, whom she knows to be hard-working, honest people, to repay on time.

With the aim of a successful crop, she will use the requested funds to buy several sacks of fertilizers that cost 1000 new soles, approximately.

As one can see in the photo, she is in a farm supply store asking about prices.

Haydee es una mujer emprendedora de 39 años y está casada con Francisco de 54 años. Tienen 5 hijos, pero actualmente viven con los 3 menores: Emily de 10, Andelina de 3 y Gresly de 1 año. Su casa es propia y está ubicada en una zona céntrica de la provincia de Tarma.

Desde hace 11 años, junto a su esposo se dedica a sembrar papa, maíz, arveja y habas, también cuenta con la ayuda de su hija mayor, aunque ya no viven con ella.
Pese a tener que cuidar a sus dos pequeños asiste a diario a trabajar en la chacra porque le gusta ver limpios y frondosos sus cultivos. Haydee considera su labor bastante rentable porque le permitió alcanzar logros importantes en su vida: “siembro porque gracias a la agricultura he podido cubrir la manutención de mi hogar, comprar mi casa, educar a mis hijos y comprar más terrenos, además puedo degustar primero mis cosechas y asegurar su calidad y sabor” – manifiesta.
Para el futuro, piensa sembrar en mayor cantidad para obtener mayores ingresos económicos e incluso está ampliando su vivienda para criar y vender animales.

Este es el primer préstamo que tiene con MFP y ante los miembros de su banco comunal, a quienes conoce por ser personas trabajadoras y honestas, se compromete a pagar puntualmente cada cuota. En busca de una cosecha exitosa, con el dinero que solicita, Haydee pretende comprar varios sacos de fertilizantes valorizados en mil nuevos soles aproximadamente. Como se observa en la foto, está en una tienda de insumos agrícolas averiguando precios.
