Guillermina
Guillermina is a hard-working 45 year old woman. Her family is comprised of her husband, Porfirio, and their four children. The children are very united, but they only live with three of them. She lives in her own house, which is located in the rural community of Pongo.

Thanks to her perseverance and dedication, this successful woman managed to get a truck. She uses the truck to transport oranges from the central jungle to the capital of the country. But, this is not the only income that she has. She also has four cows who give enough milk to make cheese. She sells the cheese to the people who live in her area.

However, the work that she likes the best is farming. She has been growing potatoes and peas for 20 years. She sends these crops to Lima via an intermediary, a wholesaler who sells products in the capital. Her plans are to grow greater quantities in order to be able to get better earnings.

She belongs to the “Paraíso al Progreso” Communal Bank. This is her third loan with MFP, where she is a regular collaborator.

Within a few months, Guillermina will harvest potatoes. Therefore, she is planning on buying various sacks of natural and chemical fertilizer so that her next harvest is a complete success.

Guillermina, es una mujer trabajadora de 45 años. Su familia lo conforma su esposo Porfirio, y sus 4 hijos, que son muy unidos; pero solo vive con 3 de ellos en su casa propia, ubicada en el caserío de Pongo. Gracias a su constancia y entrega, está exitosa mujer logró adquirir un camión con el que trasporta naranja de la selva central a la capital del país, pero eso no es el único ingreso económico que tiene. También tiene 4 vacas, que proporcionan leche suficiente para la elaboración de queso, que comercializa a los pobladores de su localidad. Pero el trabajo que más le gusta a ella es “la agricultura”, ahí siembra papa y arveja desde hace 20 años, los cuales manda a Lima, por medio de un intermediario, un mayorista que comercializa productos en la capital. Sus planes son sembrar en mayores cantidades, para poder obtener mejores ganancias. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Paraíso al progreso”, y este es el tercer crédito que tiene con MFP, donde es una asidua colaboradora. Guillermina, dentro de algunos meses cosechará papa; por ello con el crédito está pensando comprar varios sacos de abono y fertilizantes naturales para que su próxima cosecha sea todo un éxito.
