Juana
Juana is 46 years old. She is an exemplary woman who works hard, alone, to earn a living and provide an appropriate quality of life to her 3 children. As a family, they live in the settlement of Cumutay, in a humble home. She reports that her oldest son left home in search of a better future. Being both mother and father to her children is a difficult task which Juana has faced bravely since her partner, without caring about anything, abandoned them when his offspring were still small. "To fill the pot," as she says, for the past 20 years she has worked growing potatoes (a Peruvian variety of this root crop), peas and corn. She has also raised various heads of livestock, two asses and some sheep and pigs. She reports that "at first they confused me because I didn't know which one to take care of first, but now things have changed and thanks to God, my children are big and they help me at times, even when I am limited to preparing lunch because of the pains that plague me." She also says that she always likes to see her fields clean and neat because they are well-cultivated. She considers her work worthwhile because of the satisfaction and achievements it provides her in life, so that she wants to keep planting. In addition, it is the only work that she knows. She belongs to the “Lindo Amanecer de Cumutay” ["Beautiful Dawn of Cumutay"] communal bank, and this is their ninth loan with MFP, from which she expects a small loan so that she can fulfill her objectives. She also promises to be punctual with her payments. When Juana receives her support, she will invest the funds she is requesting in buying a bag of pea seeds and several sacks of natural fertilizers so she can get her next planting off to a successful start.
