Jenny
Jenny, age 31, is living with Wilder, age 33. Together they have 3 children: Ronald, 13; Janeth, 11; and Jaretsy, 9 months old. As a family unit, they live in their own house, located in the town of Palca. With the cheerfulness that characterizes her, Jenny reports that she feels economically secure. In these years, her economic situation has risen incredibly, as her husband works in one of the country's leading mines. But as a working woman, she wants to get ahead in the activity she knows best: agriculture. For the past 14 years, she has worked growing potatoes. Her fields produce 80 sacks of potatoes each day, which she sells at the wholesale market in her city after each harvest. But this is not her only work; she also buys honey from Oxapampa and sells it in the city of Tarma and in the capital.

She is now planning to put together some more capital so that she can sell her potato production and the honey she buys in greater quantities. This is her third loan with MFP, and as president of her communal bank, she is a highly mature and skilled woman, who is constantly supporting the other members. They are all hard-working and responsible women. She is planning to use the loan she is requesting to buy 2 bags of pea seeds and to hire field workers to help her plant peas.

Jenny, de 31 años, convive con Wilder, de 33 años. Ambos tiene 3 hijos: Ronald, de 13, Janeth, de 11, Jaretsy, de 9 meses de edad. En unión familiar ellos viven en su casa propia, ubicada en la localidad de Palca. Con la alegría que le caracteriza, Jenny, cuenta que se siente estable economicamente. En estos años su economía subió increíblemente, pues su esposo trabaja en una de las principales minas del país. Pero como mujer trabajadora, ella desea salir adelante en la actividad que más sabe, que es la agricultura. Hace 14 años que se dedica a la siembra de papa, su terreno agrícola produce 80 sacos de papa diario, los que después de cada cosecha vende en el mercado mayorista de su ciudad. Pero no solo a eso se dedica, también compra miel de Oxapampa y los vende en la ciudad de Tarma y en la capital.

Ahora está planeando juntar más capital para poder comercializar en mayores cantidades su producción de papa y miel que compra. Este es el tercer crédito con MFP, y como presidenta de su banco comunal, es una mujer madura y muy hábil, que constantemente apoya a sus integrantes, ya que son mujeres luchadoras y responsables. Tiene pensado destinar el crédito solicitado, en la compra de 2 bolsas de semilla de arveja, por que la venta de este producto le generaría más rentabilidad, además va a necesitar contratar peones para que le ayuden en la siembra de esté producto.
