Alida
Alidia, 22, lives with her husband, Percy, 26, and their three beautiful daughters. She is an attentive mother and her children are her reason for living. The family lives with Alidia's mother-in-law. For the past 3 years, she and her husband have grown potatoes, peas, maize and gladiolus on land given to them by the mother-in-law. Since the birth of her youngest child, Alidia hasn't been able to work as hard as before and, consequently, she limits herself to taking care of the animals--bulls, rams, horses and donkeys--that help them to move agricultural tools and supplies to the fields where they work. The parts of the business that Alidia likes best is drying the maize after a harvest and selling gladiolus in the city's flower market. Her husband wants to raise cattle so she wants to buy bulls. She also wants to continue with the farming business. Recently, she and her husband have talked about pulling together enough working capital to set up a restaurant at a mining settlement called Cerro de Pasco where they could make the most of the demand among the miners there. This is Alidia's third MFP loan. She says that she likes working with her community bank because the members of the group support one another. With this loan, Alidia will buy seeds and bags of manure for sowing a new crop.

Alida, de 22 años, es una buena madre de familia, convive con Percy de 26 años y sus tres hermosas hijas, que son su razón de vivir, juntos viven en casa de su suegra. Papa, arveja, maíz y gladiolos, es lo que siembra desde hace 3 años, junto a su esposo, en los terrenos que le cedió su suegra. Ahora que nació la última de sus hijas, no puede realizar mucho esfuerzo físico, por lo que se limita a cuidar a los animales que cría, como: toros, carneros, caballos y asnos, que le ayudan a trasladar los insumos y herramientas agrícolas hacia los terrenos que trabajará. Lo que más le gusta, es secar el maíz que cosechó y vender las flores de gladiolos por paquetes en el mercado de su ciudad. Su esposo le gusta criar ganado vacuno, es por ello que desea comprar toros, asimismo desea continuar con la siembra. Recientemente planea con su esposo conseguir un capital de trabajo y viajar a una localidad llamada “Cerro de Pasco”, donde tendría la posibilidad de instalar un restaurante, aprovechando que hay asentamientos mineros, en donde son muchas las personas que trabajaran en ese lugar. Este es el tercer crédito con MFP, y asegura que le gusta trabajar en su grupo comunal, porque está integrada por personal unidas. Con el crédito que solicita, comprará semillas de arveja y varios sacos de guano de corral para sembrarlos.
