Elizabeth
Elizabeth is 28 years old and lives in the small village of Llanco. There she formed her family together with her husband, 32 year-old Jorge. They have three children who they care for with a lot of love and affection. They live in a rented house.

The main business activity in this area is farming. Elizabeth learned to work and live off the land when she was a young girl. Since then she has worked growing peas, potatoes and flowers on a plot of land which she rents. She has been working in agriculture for five years and is very happy with her work since she is always traveling to the capital city to sell the vegetables that she grows throughout the year. What she most enjoys about her work is being able to further develop the knowledge that she gained from her parents.

Elizabeth is going to sow flowers and potatoes since this is the season where there is most demand. "You invest a little and earn a lot" she tells us. Elizabeth has the support of her husband who works every day for a company in the area. Elizabeth also looks after her children and she works to provide them with a better quality of life. Elizabeth is saving up so that she can buy her own plot of land and extend her sowing. In this way, she will earn more and be able to buy a small home for her family.

Elizabeth is a member of the "Los Ángeles de Llanco" community bank and this is her first loan with MFP. She hopes to receive your cooperation so that she can continue achieving her goals. For her part, she pledges to make her loan repayments on time. Elizabeth enjoys being a member of her community bank because all the members are responsible people who are very supportive of each other.

With your support, Elizabeth will invest the money she is requesting in buying two bags of pea seeds that she will sow soon on irrigated land. She will also buy several sacks of organic manure and natural fertilizers so that she can give her crops a successful start.
