Nilda
Nilda is a 35-year-old humble and loving mother. She has been living with her husband Martin (age 37) and their two beloved children--to whom she wishes to give a better quality of life--in a rented home for 11 years.


Nilda's crop fields are located in the Patay settlement. Her produce is very good, which is why her potatoes, corn, carrots, and peas are very sought-after at the city's wholesale market, where she sells her crops as a street vendor.


What she likes most about her job is harvesting because she feels as if the months that she invested in caring for her crops give the eagerly awaited fruits of her labor. She has been in agriculture for 20 years, and she thinks that the most difficult thing for her is protecting her crops from any invading pests. In the future, she hopes to expand her fields and increase production.


This is Nilda's eighth loan with MFP. She has always been very punctual in making her repayments and is willing to continue with this behavior. She is a very joyful communal bank member who is always joking around with her fellow group members. With the 2,000.00 PEN that she is requesting, she will purchase pea seed, fertilizer and insecticide to improve her small farm.

Nilda tiene 35 años, es una madre familia muy sencilla y amorosa. Hace 11 años que vive en una casa alquilada junto a su esposo Martín de 37 y sus 2 queridos hijos, a quienes desea dar una mejor calidad de vida.

En el poblado de “Patay” se encuentran los cultivos de Nilda, sus productos son muy buenos y es por eso que sus papas, choclos, zanahorias y alverjas,son muy bien cotizados en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad, ya que es ahí donde vende toda su cosecha en forma ambulante.
Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es cosechar sus productos, ya que siente que los meses invertidos en le cuidados de sus cultivos dan los frutos esperados. Lleva 20 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil es cuidar sus cultivos de las plagas que pueden afectarlos. Con el tiempo, espera ampliar sus tierras e incrementar su producción.

Este es el octavo préstamo de Nilda con MFP, siempre ha sido muy puntual en el pago de sus cuotas y está dispuesta a serlo ahora también. En su banco comunal es una socia muy alegre y siempre está bromeando con sus compañeras de grupo. Con los dos mil nuevos soles solicitados comprará semillas de alverja, abono e insecticidas para mejorar productividad de su chacra.
