Viviana
Viviana is 35 years old. She is married to Gregorio who is also 35. They have 5 children, 4 of whom are still studying. They live in their own home in the town of Santa Clara as a united family. “I started sowing crops 20 years ago but it seems like it was yesterday”, Viviana says. Her life is centered around the care of her plots of land which is where she spends most of her day. Her main crops are different varieties of potato. Her good character helps her when selling her products in the central market in the city of Tarma where her customers are good payers and are aware of the quality of her goods. What upsets her about sowing crops is when blight and pests take over her tubers, causing great losses. However, this does not stop her. For this reason though, she would like to be able to keep her plots of land, clean and healthy. This is the eighth loan she has had from MFP and she is grateful that she has had the support of her community bank and been able to sow her crops. With this loan she will buy organic fertilizer and guano (a natural fertilizer), to spread on her crops - “yungay” variety potatoes – which she will harvest shortly.

Viviana, de 35 años, es una mujer trabajadora, esta casada con Gregorio, de 35 años, ambos tienen 5 hijos, de los cuales 4 son menores y estudian, como una familia unida, ellos viven en su casa propia, ubicada en la localidad de Santa Clara. “Hace 20 años que me dedico a sembrar, pero pareciera que fue ayer”, afirma. Su vida se centra en el cuidado de sus terrenos, en los que pasa la mayor parte del día. Sus principales cultivos son de papa de las diferentes variedades. Además el buen carácter que tiene le ayuda en la comercialización de sus productos en el mercado central de la ciudad de “Tarma”, en donde sus clientes son bueno pagadores y saben de la calidad de su producción. Lo que le disgusta de la siembra es cuando, la rancha y gusanera se apodarán de los tubérculos, ocasionándole grandes pérdidas, pero eso no la desanida, por ello desea comprar sus terrenos agrícolas, limpios y sanos. Es el octavo crédito con MFP, y está agradecida por todo este tiempo que gracias al apoyo de su banco comunal, pudo sembrar. Con el crédito que obtendrá, comprará abono orgánico y guano (fertilizante natural), para esparcir en sus cultivos, de papa de la variedad “yungay”, que dentro de estos meses cosechará.
