Norma
Norma, 41, is a very determined woman who lives with Cesar, her husband of 14 years. Together they have 4 children, but they only live with 2 of them, since their adult children live in the city of Huanuco where they are in college. As a countrywoman who was born and raised among the green meadows, she learned to take maximum advantage of the teachings of her parents, who gave her agricultural land where she now cultivates potatoes, peas, corn and beans. "As the result of my work and the help of my parents I now have 6 plots of land to cultivate," she states. In addition, she has 5 dairy cows, with which she produces cheese, and also 7 bulls to help her plow the land. She says that in the harvest season she goes to the city of Tarma on the weekends to sell her produce, as well as the cheese that she makes. She already has regular customers who know the quality of the products that she sells. Now her main priority is to pay for the education of her children, because an education is the most valuable asset that she can leave to her children. She belongs to the communal bank "Nueva Jerusalen," and this is the 2nd loan that she has taken with MFP, where she awaits the cooperation of all of you so that she can continue to reach for her goals. In addition, she is committed to making her payments on time. Once she receives the loan, Norma will use the money to buy 2 sacks of pea seeds and a number of sacks of natural fertilizers to spread over her next crop of potatoes.
