Ana
Ana, age 35, is a cheerful woman who have lived with her partner, Edwin, for 15 years. They have three minor children whom they love and educate in their own home located in the rural area called Villa Visca. She has worked in agricultural since she was very young. Her main crops are potatoes, lima beans and peas, which she plants with the help of her husband, who also takes care of the Tiambra rural area every morning, where they have a small patch of cropland.

"I have to plant crops in different areas of land in order to get good quality.", she claims. What she enjoys most about her work is the rainy season since she does not have to water her fields then. What she dislikes are the plagues that arrive every year in that season. Her main difficulty is the lack of working capital which she needs to constantly fertilize her crops. But she is confident that with the help of the communal bank, which motivates her to save, soon she will have enough money to buy several head of sheep and can begin thinking about going into meat sales.

She belongs to the "Villa Visca" communal bank and this is her first loan through MFP. She is grateful for the support and opportunity she is receiving. Ana plans to use the loan to buy several sacks of organic fertilizer which she will use on her potato crop.

Ana tiene 35 años, es una dichosa mujer que convive desde hace 15 años con Edwin, con quien tiene 3 hijos menores, a los que quiere mucho y educa en su casa propia ubicada en el caserío de Villa Visca. El trabajo al que se dedica desde muy joven es la agricultura. Sus principales sembríos constan de papa, habas y arveja, los cuales siembra con ayuda de su esposo, quien además se dirige todas las mañanas al caserío de Tiambra; donde tiene pequeños sembríos. “Necesito sembrar en diferentes tierras para obtener sembríos de buena calidad”, afirma. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo son las temporadas de lluvia, pues no necesita regar sus cultivos. Más le disgusta las plagas que llegan con esa época del año. Su principal inconveniente es la falta de capital de trabajo, ya que necesita fertilizar constantemente sus cultivos. Pero está segura que con la ayuda de su banco comunal que le motiva a ahorrar, muy pronto obtendrá el dinero necesario para comprar varias cabezas de carneros, con los que está pensando incursionar en la venta de carne. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Villa Visca”, y este es el primer crédito con MFP, donde agradece el apoyo y la oportunidad brindada. Ana, invertirá el dinero del crédito en la compra de varios sacos de abono orgánico, que esparcirá en sus sembríos de papa.
