Jaqueline
29 year-old Jacqueline is a good woman and a hard worker. She adores her daughters: 9 year-old Yusbeth and her baby who is only 3 months old. The three of them live in their own home which is located in the town of Chiras. Jacqueline's husband lives in the city of Jauja for work reasons.

Jacqueline has been farming for 10 years. She grows potatoes and peas which she then sells in the central market in her town. She tells us that during good harvest seasons she also buys and sells potatoes in the city of La Oroya, where she travels frequently.

As an entrepreneurial and capable woman, Jacqueline decided six years ago to expand her business some more as her daughter was growing and needed more care and commitment. She used the little money that she had saved up to buy a small sales stall in her town market where she sells potatoes and vegetables to the locals who buy these products every day to make lunch for their households. She also mentions that a little while ago she started selling clothes to locals. In the future, she is planning to buy more farmland on which she will be able to sow a larger quantity of potatoes and, in this way, she will be able to sell in the country's capital city as well as on the Peruvian coast.

Jacqueline is a member of the "Progresistas de Chiras" community bank and this is her second loan from MFP. She feels very happy to be a member of her community bank where she is sure that she will be able to get ahead. Jacqueline will invest her loan in buying several potato harvests to sell in the mountains (in the city of La Oroya). She is also thinking of opening a store in the city of Tarma so that she can sell clothes from a stable location.
