Elizabeth
Elizabeth is 28 years old. She is a very simple and hard-working woman who lives in her own home together with her husband, 27 year-old Luis, and her beloved 3 year-old daughter Tania, who she would like to provide with a better future. The beautiful countryside surrounding Elizabeth's home town has been an important place in her life. This is where she grew up and also where she formed her family. When she was a very young girl, Elizabeth's parents taught her to work on the farm and now she has her own land which she works with a lot of care and sacrifice.

What Elizabeth most enjoys about her work is growing her potatoes, peas and beans. She has been in this business for 8 years and she considers the most difficult part of her work to be transporting her crops to the market in Tarma where she sells them. Over time, Elizabeth would like to buy new farmland, in order to increase her production.

This is Elizabeth's eighth loan with MFP. She knows that she must make all of her repayments on time and she is prepared to do this. Elizabeth is always up to date with all the agreements that are reached in her community bank. She will use the 2,000 Peruvian soles she has requested to buy more manure to improve her crops.
