Floria
Floria, a brave and optimistic 45-year-old woman, living unmarried with Amilcar, 46. They’ve had 7 children but three of them have died. They currently just live with Ketty, 15, in their own house located in the rural zone of Santa Clara.

Despite the constant difficult moments it was her lot to live, Floria affirms that she never was bowed down. On the contrary, that gave her strength to get ahead with her husband and children.

For the last 18 years she’s been farming. She farms potatoes of various kinds (Única, Pericholi, Yungay and De Color). She’s very diligent about her chores and for the last 7 years they have also been making cheese from the milk her five cows produce. Thanks to the coordinated help she gets from her husband and daughter she makes a considerable amount of cheese daily that is sold in Huasahuasi Annex every Sunday. On average, it’s between 50 and 60 units. She also sells potatoes in her local central market that they plant and harvest together during all the seasons of the year.

Floria is saving money to improve her house. But right now is concentrating on caring for her Primerisa variety of potatoes that will be harvested shortly.

She is a member of the “Trabajemos Unidos” (Let’s Work Together) communal bank and this is the second loan with MFP where she is happy to be part of her community’s most respected communal bank and where she is sure she will be able to reach her goals.

Floria will use the requested funds to buy needed supplies for her cheese business as well as to buy several sacks of organic manure that she will spread about for her next potato planting.
