Elizabeth
Elizabeth is 26 years old. She is a single and hard-working woman who lives with her mom and dad who she loves and cares for in their own home which is located in the small village of Cumutay.

Elizabeth has been farming since she was 20 years old. Her main crops are potatoes and peas. What she most enjoys about her work is being able to care for her calf while she is getting rid of the weeds that grow amongst her crops. What she doesn't enjoy are the seasons when farmers harvest a large quantity of vegetables as they flood the market and don't allow her to make good profits. However, during such seasons she leaves her peas to dry and turns them into seeds. She then sells the sacks of seeds for a better price in the central market in Tarma. This allows her to stabilize her finances. In addition, Elizabeth also spends her spare time teaching children under the age of 5. She tells us that, as a young woman, her community bank plays a dominant role in her life since it helps her to grow and forge new goals. Elizabeth is planning to open a restaurant in her area as there isn't one right now.

Elizabeth is a member of the 'Pioneros de Cumutay' (Cumutay Pioneers) community bank and this is her ninth loan from MFP. She hopes, once more, to receive your support in helping her achieve her goals. For her part, she pledges to be punctual in making her loan repayments. With your support, Elizabeth will invest the money she has requested in buying two bags of pea seeds which she will sow shortly. She will also buy several sacks of organic fertilizer so that she can make a successful start to this season.

Elizabeth tiene 26 años, es una mujer soltera y trabajadora; que vive en compañía de su mamá y su papá, a los que quiere y cuida en su casa propia ubicada en el caserío de Cumutay. Desde que tenía 20 años de edad, se dedicó a la agricultura, siendo sus principales cultivos la papa y arveja; lo que más le gusta de su labor es poder cuidar de su becerra mientras limpia la maleza que crece entre sus sembríos, pero lo que no le gusta son las temporadas donde los agricultores cosechan gran cantidad de hortalizas, ya que saturan el mercado y no le permite tener buenas ganancias. Pero es en está temporada que ella deja secar la arveja, la cual se convierte en semilla, vendiendo el saco de semilla a un mayor precio en el mercado central de Tarma, permitiéndole estabilizar su economía. Además de dedicar su tiempo libre en la enseñanza a niños menores de 5 años de edad como profesora. Comenta que como mujer joven, el papel que cumple su banco comunal en su vida, es preponderante, ya que le ayuda a crecer y forjarse nuevas metas. Por todos lo aciertos está pensando abrir un restaurante en su zona, ya que no existe una. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Pioneros de cumutay” y este es el noveno crédito con MFP, donde espera una vez más de su apoyo para lograr sus objetivos. Además se compromete en ser puntual en sus cuotas. Elizabeth de recibir su apoyo, invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de 2 bolsas de semilla de arveja que sembrará dentro de poco, además de varios sacos de abono orgánico para comenzar con éxito está temporada agrícola.
