Felipa
Felipa is 49 years old. She was married to Pablo who left her a widow 15 years ago. She has 6 children from her marriage but only lives with 2 of them: 21 year-old Vanesa and 18 year-old Hernán. They live in a rental house in the town of Palca. The untiring Felipa works hard on her farmland where she grows potatoes, peas, vegetables and a variety of flowers.

When she was 19 years old, together with her husband Pablo, she undertook the arduous task of becoming a farmer. They had to work very hard and make a lot of effort to acquire their own land where her harvests now receive a good price in the wholesale market in the city of Tarma. In honor of her husband's memory, Felipa works hard to be able to make more income. For this reason, she is investing in improving her crops.

This is Felipa's third loan from MFP and she is certain that she will be responsible in every one of her repayments so that she can continue making progress in life. She is planning to use her loan to buy 2 bags of pea seeds and several sacks of organic fertilizer for her potato crops.
