Clarisa
Clarisa, 56, lives with her husband, Gerardo, 45, in her own home. They have two adult children. Their oldest is married and their daughter moved to the capital to work and study in order to have a better future.

Owning farm lands helped her support her family through by growingf corn, peas, broad beans and vegetables in general. Her husband fell into alcoholism and she had to work alone, although now she can count on unconditional help from her older brother and nephews, who value her work and help her out with caring for the crops. She has also been able to hire field workers to help with production and harvesting. Thus, she has become a merchant of her own production; she takes her products to the capital every Wednesday to sell a variety of fresh vegetables.

Besides responsibility for her home, she started a small grocery selling business in a small store she set up in her home. She hopes to increase her crop production so that she can afford to pay for her daughter’s college education because her greatest wish is that her daughter becomes a professional.

This is her 9th loan with MFP and she expects to meet her goal. Besides, she enjoys working in a communal group because all the members are responsible persons who wish to progress.

She will use the 2500 new soles requested to buy a sack of pea seed, two sacks of manure and will hire more field hands to help with the potato harvest; she will also buy stock inventory items for her little store.
