Elvira
Elvira, age 34, lives with Juan Pablo, who is 44. They have three young children who they take care of and provide an education. Elvira and her family live in their own home in the rural area of Yaroka. She has been farming for 16 years and grows different crops that are native to the area such as potatoes, peas, corn, and gladiolas. After each harvest, she sells her crops at the local central market. A few years ago, she invested in the purchase of her own farmland. “I am making small payments, but when I fall a little short, I find a way to complete them,” she says. With each harvest she manages to sell her products at a very good price, thus ensuring that she is able to generate more income. In addition to farming, she raises and fattens pigs and sells the meat at the local central market. Being an intelligent woman who wants to make progress, Elvira takes advantage of frequent educational seminars provided by MFP.


This is the second loan she has received from her Communal Bank. She has proven to be a good member by being prompt with her payments. The loan she requested will be used to buy 20 sacks of compost and 100 sacks of guano (bird manure used as a natural fertilizer). She has eight hectares of corn that will be harvested soon.

Elvira, de 34 años, convive con Juan Pablo, de 44 años. Ambos tienen 3 hijos, todos ellos menores de edad, a los que cuidan y educan en su casa propia, ubicada en la zona rural de Yaroka. El trabajo al que se dedica es la agricultura, ahí siembra desde hace 16 años los diversos cultivos oriundos de la zona como: papa, arveja, choclo y gladiolos. Los que después de cada cosecha los comercializa en el mercado central de su localidad. Sin embargo hace algunos años que se encuentra invirtiendo en la compra de su propio terreno agrícola. “ya estoy pagando una parte, pero me falta poco, para poder terminar de cancelar”, afirma. Por ello en cada cosecha se las ingenia para poder vender su producción a muy buen precio, pues está segura que cuando concrete su compra podrá obtener más ganancias. Pero no solo a ello se dedica ella, ya que tiene chanchos, a los que después de cebarlos, comercializa su carne en el mercado central de su localidad. Elvira, es una mujer muy inteligente y con ganas de progresar, ya que eso le enseñó MFP, en sus constantes charlas educativas. Ya es el segundo crédito que tiene, con su banco comunal, y como buena integrante es puntual en sus pagos. Con el crédito que solicita, podrá adquirir 20 sacos de abono; 100 sacos de guano (fertilizante natural), ya que muy pronto cosechará sus 8 hectáreas de cultivo de choclo.
