Rosa
Rosa is 50 years old. She has been separated from her husband for 28 years. She has four children, and she lives with her youngest child. She lives in her own house, which is made of humble materials. She has been farming for 30 years. She also prepares food, which is sold in her oldest child’s house.

Nevertheless, she worries a lot about not being able to count on help from her family each time she works on her farm. She needs to hire workers to speed up her work. Of her two activities, she likes farming the best. This is because she will be able to get a good reward during the harvest, which allows her to cover the household expenses. Also, above all, she can collaborate economically with her children who are looking for a better future for her grandchildren.

Later on she wants to plant citrus fruits, bananas, and avocados. She hopes to have them fertile so that she can leave them to her children.

This is her third loan with MFP. She is happy working with her communal bank she feels the support of her colleagues in every decision she makes. She will use the loan she is requesting to buy ten sacks of fertilizer and eight cans of herbicides. She will also buy traps for flies so that they do not affect the crops.

Rosa tiene 50 años, separada de su esposo desde hace 28 años, tiene 4 hijos, pero vive con el menor de ellos, en su domicilio propio fabricado de material rústico. Desde 30 años se dedica a la agricultura, pero paralelamente prepara comida, negocio que vende en la casa de su hijo mayor. Sin embargo a ella le preocupa mucho, el no poder contar con la ayuda de su familia cada vez que trabaja en su chacra, por lo que tiene que contratar operarios para agilizar su labor. Dentro de estas dos actividades, lo que más le gusta es la agricultura, por que sabe que podrá obtener una buena recompensa durante la cosecha y eso le permitirá cubrir los gastos del hogar y sobre todo colaborar económicamente con sus hijos, que buscan un futuro mejor para sus nietos. Más adelante desea cultivar frutas cítricas, plátanos y paltas como hasta hoy, ya que espera tenerlos fértiles para heredarles a sus hijos. Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, y está contenta de trabajar con su grupo comunal, porque se siente respaldada por sus compañeros en cada decisión que toma. Con el crédito que solicita, comprará 10 sacos de fertilizantes, 8 latas de herbicidas, asimismo comprará trampas para la mosca, para evitar que afecten los cultivos.
