Marina
Marina, age 56, is a hardworking and cheerful woman. She lives in her own home with her husband Gabriel, age 60. What she desires most is to work hard so that she can get ahead in life. Marina has spent most of her life in the small town of Patay. There she learned the family business of farming as a young girl. Now she grows potatoes, ulluco, corn, and peas. Her work has resulted in the necessary income to maintain her family. Everything she harvests is sold at the wholesale market in Tarma where she is able to obtain the best prices for her products. What she enjoys most about her work is sowing her land, which she does with great care. Marina has been farming for 36 years and considers the most difficult part to be getting her products to the wholesale market because transportation is limited in her area. Within time, she hopes to buy additional farmland so that she can increase production.


This is her third loan with MFP. Marina has been prompt with her loan payments and expects to continue in the same manner. In her Communal Bank, she is an active participant and greatly admired by the other members. The loan of 3000 PEN that she requested will be used to buy more compost and fertilizers for her crops.

En su pequeño Patay, Marina ha pasado la mayor parte de su vida, desde muy niña aprendió la actividad familiar que es la agricultura y por eso, ahora se dedica al cultivo de papa, olluco, maíz y arveja, trabajo que le ha brindado los ingresos necesarios para mantener a su familia. Todo lo cosechado, lo vende en el mercado mayorista de Tarma, que es donde mejores precios obtiene por sus productos. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es sembrar sus tierras y lo hace con mucho esmero, lleva 36 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil es transportar sus productos hasta el mercado mayorista, ya que los transportes son muy escasos por su zona.
