Gladys
Gladys, 37 years old, is a courageous single mother with three children, who she cares for and educates with great care - they are her reason for living. They all live together in her parents' house in the hamlet of Huallquin. This spirited woman works in agriculture. Twenty years ago she began to work the land sowing potatoes, peas and ullucos; after fertilizing them, washing them and harvesting them, they are then sold in the city's wholesale market.
Yet, during the months when her products have already been sown, she sells kilos of potatoes at the market fairs in Tarma every Thursday and Sunday. This woman's desire to make ends meet is impressive, and her ultimate motivation is to get by and make her children into professional people. She belongs to the communal bank "Nuevo Amanecer Renovado", and this is her sixth loan with MFP, where she is a well liked member for her work and her sense of responsibility. Gladys will sow the "Yungay" variety of potato, for which she will use the loan to buy 6 sacks of organic fertilizer to scatter over her fields when they are sown for the next harvest.

Gladys, de 37 años es una esforzada madre soltera de 3 hijos; a los que cuida y educa con mucho esmero, pues son su razón de vivir. Juntos viven en casa de sus padres, ubicada en el caserío de Huallquin. El trabajo al que se dedica está esforzada mujer es la “agricultura”. Desde que tenía 20 años, comenzó a producir la tierra sembrando papa, arveja y olluco, los que después de fertilizarlos, limpiarlos y cosecharlos, son vendidos en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad. Pero durante los meses que están sembrados sus productos, ella se dedica a la venta de papa por kilos en las ferias que se realizan en el mercado modelo de Tarma, cada jueves y domingo. Las ganas de salir delante de está mujer son impresionantes, y ve en sus limitaciones la motivación de salir adelante para poder sacar profesionales a sus hijos. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “nuevo amanecer renovado”, y este es el sexto crédito con MFP, donde es una socia muy querida, por su trabajo y responsabilidad. Gladys cosechará papa de la variedad “yungay”, por ello con el crédito comprará 6 sacos de abono orgánico los cuales esparcirá entre sus sembríos para su próxima cosecha.
