Rosario
Rosario is 38 years old and her entire life revolves around constant effort. She is married to Fidmer, 33, and they have three children but only one of them lives with her in her own house located in the hamlet of Cayan.

She has worked in the field since she was a little girl because her parents were great farmers who taught her all the farming techniques that Rosario now uses in search of successful harvests. However, she’s been farming independently alongside her husband for 15 years now. She loves the land of her birth and has always planted large extensions of tubers (potatoes) because the area where she lives is at a high elevation and that’s the only thing that grows well because the quality of the land is ideal and they can develop freely and grow strong. However, she doesn’t like having to carry the heavy sacks to market and this is why they seek out direct buyers. In search of new sources of income she wants to have a stand in the city of “Huasahuasi” to sell vegetables and her delicious varieties of potato.

She is a member of the “Unión por el Trabajo” (Unity for Work) communal bank and this is the tenth loan. She is happy to work with this association because she used to belong to a different group of very hard working people but because of its location she had to drop out.

Rosario will use the requested money to buy 12 sacks of potato seed of the “Yungay” variety that she plans to plant this month as well as several sacks of organic manure to spread among her plants.

Rosario, tiene 38 años, y toda su vida transcurre alrededor de constante esfuerzo, ella, está casada con Fidmer, de 33 años, con quien tiene 3 hijos, peor sólo vive con uno de ellos, en sus casa propia, ubicada en el caserío de Cayan. Desde muy pequeña trabaja en la chacra, porque sus padres fueron grandes agricultores que le enseñaron todas las técnicas agrícolas que ahora Rosario, emplea en busca de cosechas exitosas, pero lleva 15 años cultivando papa de manera independiente, junto a su esposo. Ella, ama la tierra que la vio nacer y desde siempre sembró grandes extensiones de tubérculos (papa), porque la zona donde vive es alta, y es lo único que produce mejor, porque la calidad de la tierra es ideal, lo que más le gusta es cultivar los surcos para dejarlos alineados, porque pueden desarrollarse libremente y crecer fuertes, sin embargo le desagrada cargar los pesados sacos y trasladarlos a los mercados; por eso buscan compradores directos. En busca de nuevos ingresos económicos, quiere contar con un puesto de venta en el mercado de la ciudad “Huasahuasi” para comercializar verduras y sus sabrosas variedades de papa. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Unión por el trabajo”, y este es el décimo crédito con MFP, donde está contenta de trabajar con esta asociación; pues antes pertenecía a otro grupo de personas muy trabajadoras, pero por motivo de la ubicación se tuvo que retirar. Rosario, comprará con el dinero solicitado 12 sacos de semilla de papa de la variedad “yungay”, que piensa sembrar dentro de este mes, asimismo varios sacos de abono orgánico para esparcirlos entre su próxima siembra.
