Gloria
Gloria, age 40, is an exemplary woman. She lives with her life partner, 50 year old Andrés, and their four children. She lives in her own house.

She has been growing peas, beans, potatoes, gladiola flowers, and various greens (like spinach, lettuce, and coriander) for ten years. Her husband works part-time in his sister’s bakery. That is why she only has help working from her children.

What she likes the best is removing the weeds from her crops. She does this to give them enough space to develop freely. However, she does not like the hefty amount she pays to transport her crops. She says that in spite of some harvests not being good, they always produce income. That is why she wants to increase her productivity.

She also wishes to set up her own bakery. Her older children know the process for making bread.

This is her second loan with MFP. She likes working with the members of her communal bank because they are responsible people. As part of the governing board of the communal bank she requires punctuality.

Gloria plans to invest the requested money by purchasing two bags of pea seeds and various sacks of fertilizer. She wishes to improve her crop production.

Su esposo trabaja en la panadería de su hermana, por horas, por lo que ella solo trabaja con la ayuda de sus hijos.
