Anastacia
Fifty-two-year-old Anastacia is a brave woman. She was widowed eight years ago and despite that she has maintained the strength to take care of three of her seven children, whom she feeds in her own home in the small village of Apaycanchilla. She is an exemplary woman who despite being alone still works in agriculture, as she used to sow her fields of peas, broad beans, and potatoes with her husband's help. She still takes care of her fields as it is her only means of economic support. From dawn until dusk she cleans, fertilizes, and harvests her crops, which she does with the help of laborers whom she frequently hires. She has 25 years of experience now and what she likes most is selling her produce at the wholesale market in the city of Tarma, which she visits constantly. Currently, she wants to improve her crops as she has 2ha of productive land that yields good income for her. She also needs to work more every day as her children are growing and she wants to be able to pay for their college education. She belongs to the Campo Verde Communal Bank and this is her fifth loan with MFP. She hopes to receive your help in order to continue with her goals. She also promises to make her payments on time. Upon receiving your help, Anastacia will invest the loan money in the purchase of a bag of pea seed, a bag of broad bean seed, and, if there is enough money left, she will buy natural fertilizers to start her next sowing successfully.
