Yolanda
Yolanda, 51, is a valiant woman who was widowed 7 years ago. She has 7 children but only three still live with her in her own house located in Sanchirio del Palomar (Peruvian central jungle). With help from her children, Yolanda works hard to get ahead. Since her husband died she has had to make important decisions about the sale of her crops.

She has worked in the fields since she was 16 years old but when she formed her own family she rented agricultural fields which in time and with much effort became her own property. She grows coffee, bananas and avocados that she sells in the nation’s capital where she travels to constantly. Now she wants to gather a significant amount of money to invest in planting more than 12 hectares of farmland with which to assure her children’s future.

This is her first loan from MFP and she is starting a new phase where she will be able to get financial support and generate new income thanks to her communal bank. She hopes to get ahead.

If the requested loan is granted she plans to use it to buy 5 sacks of organic manure and if there is enough money left over she will buy a fumigator which costs around 350 new soles.

Yolanda, de 51 años, es una valerosa mujer que enviudó hace 7 años. Ella tiene 7 hijos, pero solo vive con 3 de ellos, en su casa propia, ubicada en la localidad de Sanchirio del Palomar (selva central peruana). Con la ayuda de sus hijos, Yolanda trabaja arduamente para salir adelante; desde que murió su esposo, tuvo que tomar importantes decisiones en la venta de sus sembríos. Desde que tenía 16 años, Yolanda comenzó a trabajar en el campo, pero cuando consolido su familia, arrendó terrenos agrícolas, que con el tiempo y mucho trabajo pasaron a ser suyas. Sus cultivos de café, plátanos y palta; los vende en la capital del país, donde viaja constantemente. Ahora quiere juntar un capital considerable de dinero, para poder invertir en la siembra de más de 12 hectáreas de terrenos agrícolas, con los que pueda asegurar el futuro de sus hijos. Este es el primer crédito con MFP, y en está nueva etapa que comienza, donde podrá recibir apoyo y generar nuevos ingresos, gracias a su banco comunal. Espera salir adelante. De adquirir el crédito solicitado tiene pensado comprar 5 sacos de abono orgánico y, si el dinero le alcanza comprará una mochila fumigadora, cuyo precio oscila entre los 350 nuevos soles.
