Artemia is 58 years old and lives in her own house with her husband Lucio, who is 62 years old, and their 2 young children. They live together in a quiet spot in the central mountains of Peru. This hard working woman has worked in agriculture since she was young, and currently grows potato, olluco and oca in her own fields. She works with her family and says that she very much likes taking care of the fields. She does so very thoroughly because after a time she collects the produce and sells it to wholesalers in the city. They offer her good prices and buy all her products because they are good quality. She considers her activity to be profitable because it allows her to live comfortably. AlongsiD. this work, she also sells beef and lamb, which she buys wholesale and retails in order to generate a little extra income. She is a woman who, despite her advanced years, struggles each day to move forward. In the future she plans to sow greater quantities and to buy some cattle to breed and sell in case of emergency. This is Artemia's eleventh loan with MFP, and she promises to make her repayments on time to continue progressing. She is also very grateful to all the people who provided the money that will allow her to continue making progress. She plans to invest the loan requested in the purchase of wholesale meat to improve her business, as she has several orders to meet and hopes to make a regular income from her investment.
