Yolanda
Yolanda, 48, lives with her partner Antonio, 57, with whom she has 3 children, of which only one lives with them in their own home. For 18 years she has grown peas, potatoes, gladioli and maize on the land she owns, counting on the help of her husband. Parallel to this she has also raised horses and donkeys, who help her to transport her products and tools to the land where she works during the day. Yolanda likes growing peas and gladioli because they are the products in greatest demand in the market, particularly during festival times. Without question it's difficult for Yolanda to have to transport what she harvests and to pay for the transport, but she knows that her profits depend on this. In the most recent harvest season Yolanda took her product to the wholesale market in Lima where she received better economic returns. In the future Yolanda wants to grow peas in a larger quantity and install a food sale business in her house. This is her second loan with MFP, and she is happy to continue working with the members of her communal bank as they know her working methodology which she likes very much. With the loan she is seeking Yolanda thinks to invest in the purchase of 2 bags of pea seeds.

Yolanda, de 48 años, convive con su pareja Antonio de 57 años, con quien tiene 3 hijos y de los cuales sólo vive con uno de ellos, en su casa propia. Desde hace 18 años siembra arveja, papa, gladiolo y maíz, en terrenos que posee, en donde además cuenta con la ayuda de su esposo. Paralelamente cría caballos y asnos que le ayudan a trasladar sus insumos y herramientas hacía los campos que trabajará durante el día. Yolanda, le gusta sembrar arveja y gladiolos porque son productos con mayor demanda en el mercado, principalmente en épocas festivas, sin embargo le es pesado tener que trasladar lo que cosechó y pagar el traslado, pero sabe que de ello depende para vender sus frutos. En esta última campaña de cosecha, llevó su producción al mercado mayorista de la ciudad de Lima, logrando ganar mayores ingresos económicos. Para su futuro, desea sembrar en mayor cantidad arvejas e instalar una tienda de venta de comestibles en su casa. Este es el segundo crédito con MFP, y está feliz de continuar laborando con los integrantes de su banco comunal, pues conoce su metodología de trabajo que le gusta mucho. Con el crédito que solicita, lo piensa invertir en la compra de dos bolsas de semilla de arveja.
