Elizabeth
Elizabeth is 26 years old and single. She is a hard-working woman who lives with her mom, 52 year-old Abelarda, and her dad, 54 year-old Abraham. She loves and looks after her parents in their own home which is located in the village of Cumutay.

Since she was 20 years old, Elizabeth has been working as a farmer. Her main crops are potatoes and peas. What she most likes about her work is being able to look after her calf while she clears away the weeds that grow between her crops. What Elizabeth does not like are the seasons when farmers grow a large quantity of vegetables because they flood the market and she can't make good profits. In this season she is leaving her pea crop to dry. She will convert it into seed and will sell sacks of pea seed at a higher price in the central market in Tarma which will allow her to stabilize her finances.

With all the good decisions that she has made, Elizabeth is thinking of opening a restaurant in her area because there isn't one at present.

This is Elizabeth's eighth loan with MFP and, as a young woman, she assures us that her community bank plays a predominant role in her life since it helps her to grow and set herself new goals. Elizabeth will use this loan to buy 15 sacks of organic fertilizer which cost around 100 Peruvian soles a sack.

Elizabeth, de 26 años, es una mujer soltera y trabajadora; que vive en compañía de su mamá Abelarda, de 52 y su papá Abraham, de 54 años de edad, a los que quiere y cuida en su casa propia ubicada en el caserío de Cumutay. Desde que tenia 20 años de edad, se dedico a la agricultura, sus principales cultivos constan de papa y alverjas; lo que más le gusta de su labor es poder cuidar de su becerra mientras limpia la maleza que crece entre sus sembríos, pero lo que no le gusta a Elizabeth, son las temporadas donde los agricultores cosechan gran cantidad de hortalizas, ya que saturan el mercado y no le permite tener buenas ganancias. Pero es en está temporada que ella, deja secar la alverja, la cual se convierte en semilla, vendiendo el saco de semilla de alverja a un mayor precio; en el mercado central de Tarma, lo que le permite estabilizar su economía. Por todos lo aciertos que tiene está pensando abrir un restaurante en su zona, ya que no existe una. Es el octavo crédito con MFP, y como mujer joven, asegura que el papel que cumple su banco comunal en su vida, es preponderante, ya que le ayuda a crecer y forjarse nuevas metas. De obtener el crédito comprará 15 sacos de abono orgánico que oscila entre los 100 nuevos soles aproximadamente.
