Lucinda
Lucinda, 38 years old, is a loving and hardworking mother. She lives in her own home with her husband Andres, who is 40 years old, and their 3 children, for whom they wish to provide a better education. By the sweat of her brow, Lucinda has been able to bring from her fields the necessary products to support her family. She leaves her house before dawn every morning and walks close to an hour and a half to arrive at her land, where she has sown potatoes, peas, beans and olluco (an Andean tuber). She will later bring these products to sell at the wholesale market in the city of Tarma.

What Lucinda likes most about her work is cultivating her land, as she feels that she is putting it to good use. She has working the land for 30 years. Lucinda feels that the most difficult aspect of her work is transporting the produce to Tarma, because the sacks that she carries are very heavy, and she gets tired. With time, she would like to put in grocery store so that she can increase her income.

This is her ninth loan with MFP; she is very happy and would like to thank all the people who have made it possible for her to obtain the support that she needs. She is a very respected member of her community group because of the order that she brings to their meetings. With the 1500 nuevos soles that she asks for, she will buy new pea, potato, and olluco seeds, as well as fertilizer to put on this new crop.

Lucinda, de 38 años, es una madre muy amorosa y trabajadora, vive en su casa propia junto a su esposo Andres de 40 años y sus 3 hijos, a quienes desea brindarles una mejor educación. Trabajando arduamente, Lucinda ha logrado que sus chacras le brinden los productos necesarios, para mantener a su familia. Antes que el sol deje ver sus primeros rayos, sale de su casa y camina cerca de una hora y media para llegar a sus tierras, donde tiene sembrado papa, arveja, habas y olluco, productos que posteriormente lleva a vender hasta el mercado mayorista de la ciudad de Tarma. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es cultivar sus tierras, ya que siente que les da un buen uso, lleva 30 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil es transportar sus productos hasta Tarma, ya que los costales que lleva son muy pesados y la cansan mucho. Con el tiempo, desea poner una tienda de abarrotes, para que pueda mejorar su economía. Este es el noveno crédito con MFP, está muy feliz y quiere agradecer a todas las personas que harán posible que obtenga este aporte que necesita. En su grupo comunal es una socia muy respetada por el orden que pone en las reuniones. Con los mil quinientos nuevos soles que solicita, comprará nuevas semillas de arveja, papa y olluco, asimismo comprará abono para aplicarlos a esta nueva siembra.
