Irma
Irma, 23, has two children; one is four and the other is one year old. She’s been living with her spouse for almost two years in a humble house that’s hers, though. She and her husband farm fields they own where they grow coffee, bananas and some manioc for family consumption. Essentially, they live off coffee sales. On the other hand, her husband earns extra income working as a day worker on other fields but he doesn’t do this too frequently.

Irma is starting the farming chores. Her family is still young so she’s always had inconveniences because of that like the lack of budget, for example, and lack of personnel and land. Later on if her plans for the fields prosper she hopes to do some home improvements, to replace the rustic roof with plywood as well as some other details to provide her children with a better quality of life.

This is her first MFP loan and she hopes it will be continuous because she very much wants to grow. Work with “Los Yorinis” (her communal bank) is pleasant and serves as inspiration for her to continue enterprising. She will use the money to buy sacks of manure and fertilizer that she figures will cost about 150 soles per sack and coffee seeds to start the new planting.

Irma de 23 años de edad tiene 2 hijos, uno de 4 y otro de 1 año. Son casi 2 años los que convive con su pareja en una casa humilde pero propia. Ella y su esposo se dedican a la agricultura en terrenos de su propiedad donde siembran café, plátano, y algo de yuca para consumo de su familia. Esencialmente, ellos viven de la venta del café, por otra parte su esposo aporta otros ingresos trabajando como peón en sembríos ajenos, pero no lo hace con frecuencia. Irma está iniciando sus labores agrícolas, su familia aún es joven, por eso siempre han tenido inconvenientes, tales como la falta de presupuesto, de personal y de terrenos. Más adelante, si sus planes en el campo prosperan ella espera arreglar su casa, sustituir su techo rústico por uno de calaminas y otros detalles para darles a sus hijos una mejor calidad de vida. Es su primer crédito en MFP, y espera que sea continuo por que tiene muchas ansias de crecimiento. El trabajo con “Los Yorinis” (su banco comunal) es agradable y le sirve de inspiración para seguir emprendiendo. Comprará con el dinero sacos de abonos y fertilizantes que calcula costará unos 150 soles por costal, y semillas de café para iniciar una nueva siembra.
