Her primary economic activity is farming. She has 7 years of experience growing peas, beans, potatoes and corn; her crops are located in the hamlet of San Antonio where she goes contently each morning to tend to her plants. She has her husband’s help, and also other laborers who assist at harvest time.
What she enjoys most about her work is the planting season, and seeing her crops mature so she can witness the fruit of her efforts when she sells her products at the wholesale market in Tarma. Her biggest challenges are meeting the educational expenses of her children. For this reason, she is very content to work with her small cooperative bank.
Currently, she waits gladly to be able to make improvements to her home, an endeavor she is sure she will have all of your support for. She belongs to the “Señor de Muruhuay” cooperative bank, and this is her third loan with MFP. She is very grateful for the support they provide her towards fixing her house.
Luzmila’s house doesn’t have a fence, windows or doors; for this reason, the loan will be invested into building a wall, as well as for installing doors for her kitchen and bedrooms.
