Edita
Edita is 36 years old and lives in her home with her husband and three children. For more than three years she has been growing vegetables, especially broccoli and cauliflower, since these are highly prized goods that earn good prices at the market. For this reason, she puts the effort into planting these crops. Her husband and children are always monitoring each step that is required to grow each product, from planting through harvest. She hires workers for the final process which involves collecting everything that is ready for harvest. Once everything is collected Edita sells her products directly at the local market, but she also takes them to other cities nearby to expand her customer base. During the whole time she has been farming, Edita has seen improvements in her finances because her profits have been good and her land has maintained its fertility season after season. In order to keep improving her crops, she wants to expand by acquiring more land.


This is her tenth loan with MFP. Edita is very happy to know she has financial support, which is why she has always demonstrated responsibility with her payments. She is glad to be part of her Communal Bank because all of the members are responsible and supportive people. Edita thanks those individuals who will be approving this loan since it will be very useful in advancing her business. The loan she is requesting will be used to pay for maintenance of the vehicle she uses for transporting her products to other cities.

Edita tiene 36 años, vive con su esposo y sus 3 hijos en su casa propia. Hace más de 3 años cultiva hortalizas, principalmente brócoli y coliflor, por ser vegetales muy cotizados y mejor renumerados en el mercado. Es por ello que se esfuerzan en la siembra de estos productos, tanto su esposo y sus hijos siempre están al pendiente en cada proceso que requiere estos cultivos, desde que son sembrados hasta la cosecha, en donde contrata operarios para éste último proceso en donde se encargan de la recolección. Una vez cosechado, son vendidos directamente en el mercado de su zona, asimismo son llevados a otras ciudades cercanas para ampliar su mercado. Durante este tiempo, ha visto mejoras en su economía debido a las rentas que recibe son buenas y la tierra que posee se mantiene con los mismos nutrientes, necesarios para los próximos cultivos. En adelante desea mejorar sus cultivos aumentando sus extensiones de terreno que tiene. Este es su décimo crédito con MFP, esta muy contenta de saber que tiene un apoyo financiero ya que siempre ha demostrado ser responsable en sus pagos, además le agrada ser parte de su grupo comunal porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y muy solidarias, agradece aquellas personas que son gestoras del préstamo, puesto que le será muy útil en el progreso de su negocio. Con el crédito que solicita, invertirá en el pago de mantenimiento mecánico de su carro, que le sirve para transportar sus productos a otras ciudades.
