Rosenda
Rosenda, age 27, provides support for her family. She lives with her partner Julián, age 31, and has three children: Wimbliaw who is 10, Yuritza who is 5, and Danny who is 2 years old. Her family is large and they live in a rented house in the central village of Santa Clara. Every morning she organizes her family’s activities. Her husband Julián is away several days at his job at the local mine. For this reason, Rosenda manages her time well among her activities. In the mornings, she attends to her small but well-stocked grocery store where she sells basic necessities to the local villagers. In the afternoons, she looks after her farmland on which she grows potatoes and peas. Rosenda has been farming for 13 years and has acquired the knowledge and skills needed to survive in this type of work. “I’ve never stopped farming,” says Rosenda. Later on, she wants to rent more farmland so that she can grow more varieties of potatoes and be able to sell them in other parts of the country more often than just three times a year.


This is her fourth loan with MFP. Rosenda is very pleased because she can now save and set new goals. With the loan she acquired, she plans to invest in rented farmland and pay the workers who will carry out her new project in which she plans to plant more potatoes.

Rosenda, de 27 años, es el sostén de su familia; convive con Julián, de 31años, la pareja tiene 3 hijos, Wimbliaw, de 10, Yuritza, de 5 y, Danny, de 2 años de edad; como una gran familia, ellos viven en una casa alquilada en el centro poblado de “Santa Clara”. Todas las mañanas ella, organiza las actividades de la familia. Su esposo Julián, se interna varios días, a trabajar en la mina de su localidad. Por ello Rosenda, distribuye bien sus actividades: durante las mañanas, ella atiende a su pequeña pero abastecida tienda de comestibles, donde vende productos de primera necesidad a los pobladores de su localidad; y por las tardes se dirige a sus terrenos de cultivos, donde cuida sus sembríos de papa y arveja. Lleva 13 años dedicándose a la agricultura, en todo este tiempo pudo adquirir conocimiento y habilidad para sobrevivir de ello; “nunca dejare de cultivar”, afirma. Más adelante ella alquilará más terrenos de cultivo para sembrar más variedades de papa, y así poder vender en diferentes lugares del país y no solo 3 veces al año. Es el cuarto crédito con MFP y está muy contenta porqué ahora ya puede ahorrar y planear nuevos objetivos. Con el crédito que adquirirá, está pensando invertir en el arriendo de terrenos de cultivo y el pago del personal que trabajará en su nuevo proyecto; en el que piensa sembrar papa.
