Vacelisa
Vacelisa is 37 years old. She has 10 children and still supports 7 of them. She lives with her husband Venancio in a small rustic house she owns. She and her numerous family work in agriculture. In their 15 plots of land they sow coffee, corn, manioc, plantain, and other produce for personal consumption. "Annatto is a product for which there is a lot of demand in the province of Chanchamayo", she mentions. She herself considers this crop profitable because said plant is used for coloring cheeses and butters, and also as a main ingredient for making condiments.
The main problem she faces comes when the weather is bad, with too much or too little rainfall, and also when the price of her produce is down. Vacelisa and Venancio live harmoniously, but they wish that in time their 15 plots of land can be cultivated in their entirety. That way they can establish themselves financially and give their children a good education.
This is the first loan they receive from MFP. Because of it, she is enthusiastic about the days and months to come and also about working with her communal bank, with which she is pleased so far. With the loan she requests she will purchase corn seeds and pay the farmlabourers who help her with sowing and harvesting.

Vacelisa de 37 años de edad, tiene 10 hijos, de ellos todavía mantiene a 7. Convive con Venancio, su esposo en una casita rústica que es de su propiedad. Ella y su numerosa familia se dedican a la agricultura, con la siembra de café, maíz, yuca, plátano, entre otros de consumo personal; en sus 15 parcelas de terreno agrícola. “El achiote es un producto que tiene mucha demanda en la provincia de Chanchamayo”, menciona. A su vez considera su cultivo rentable por que dicha planta es utilizada para la pigmentación de quesos, mantequillas; y como principal ingrediente para la elaboración de condimentos. El principal problema que tiene ella, proviene de las malas jugadas del clima, el exceso y escasez de lluvias; además de la baja de precios de sus productos. Vacelisa y Venancio viven en armonía, pero anhelan que, con el pasar de los años, sus 15 porciones de terrenos sean explotados en su totalidad, para afianzarse económicamente y darles a sus hijos una buena educación. Es el primer crédito que obtienen de MFP, por ello, se muestra entusiasta frente a los días y meses venideros y más aún con el trabajo dentro de su banco comunal, del cual se siente satisfecha hasta el momento. Con el dinero que solicita, podrá comprar semillas de maíz y pagar a los jornaleros que apoyarán en su siembra y cosecha.
