Isidora
Isidora is 45 years old and lives in the town of Palcamayo. She is known as a simple and hard-working woman. She is a single mother and lives in a rented house with her four beloved children. As a good country woman, she learned as a child to care for and tend the land. Since then, with a lot of effort, she has worked her land and made it very productive. She grows potatoes, carrots, spinach, and peas. After she gives them the necessary care, she sells her crops in the wholesale market in the city of Tarma.

Her crops have given her the income necessary to provide for her family, so she wants to put all of her effort into improving her business. The thing she likes best about her work is caring for her crops. She has been doing this work for 20 years and she thinks the most difficult part is transporting her crops from the countryside to the city. In addition to selling meat at the wholesale market in the city of Tarma, she also raises pigs and sheep, which she fattens to later sell her meat two or three times a week.

Now she is preparing for the spinach and pea harvest, where she is sure to earn a good profit. In the future, she wants to purchase new land to expand her production.

She is a member of the Virgen María community bank, and this is her ninth loan with MFP. She hopes that a small loan will allow her to meet her goals. She promises once again to make her payments on time, as she has done with her past loans. She is thankful to be a part of her community bank because all of the members are responsible and supportive people. Isidora will invest her loan in the purchase of pigs, whose price is about 400 soles each, and if she has money left, she will purchase spinach seeds for her next crop.
