Felicita
Felicita is 29 years old and lives in her own home along with her husband Michel, who is also 29 years old, and their two young children. They live in a neighborhood located in the Peruvian mountains. From a young age, Felicita saw how her parents worked the land and prepared for months for the planting season. In this way, she learned everything necessary about agricultural techniques and several years later began practicing in her own fields, growing potatoes, peas and broad beans.

It turned out that she loved her work especially because she could do it alongside her husband. Although it was sometimes tedious waking up every day at dawn, she knew that all the effort would pay off once she saw all the produce. She sells to the wholesalers in the city who buys all her harvest for a good price. These earnings allow her to have a good quality of life. Felicita always thinks about the future and she has plans to increase her production of peas in order to continue to commercialize her natural products.

This is her third credit with MFP. The work with her group is going well now that all the members are very punctual in their repayments. Felicita is thinking of using the loan that she is soliciting to buy bean seeds and fertilizer to ensure good soils for the next planting season.

Felicita tiene 29 años, vive en su casa propia en compañía de su esposo Michel de 29 años y de sus 2 pequeños hijos, en un barrio ubicado en la sierra peruana. Desde muy pequeña miraba como sus padres trabajaban la tierra y se preparaban durante meses para la cosecha. De esta manera aprendió todo lo necesario de las técnicas agrícolas que luego de unos años viene practicando en sus chacras, pues siembra papa, alverjas y habas. Manifiesta además que le gusta mucho su trabajo, porque lo realiza junto a su esposo, aunque es algo tedioso despertarse todos los días al amanecer, pero sabe que todo esfuerzo es recompensado, ya que el ver toda la producción que obtiene son vendidos a los mayoristas de la ciudad, que le compran toda su producción a buenos precios. Estas ganancias le permiten tener una buena calidad de vida y como Felicita siempre se proyecta hacia el futuro, tiene planeado aumentar su producción de alverjas, para continuar comercializando sus productos naturales. Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, además el trabajar con su grupo le ido bien, ya que todos los integrantes son muy puntuales en el pago de sus cuotas. Felicita tiene pensado invertir el crédito que solicita, en la compra de semilla de habas y abono para asegurar sus tierras en la próxima siembra.
