Sonia
Sonia, 26, is a hard-working woman who has lived with her husband, Fel, for two years. They have 2 daughters, Deysi and Evelin, and live in their own house, located in the village of Huaytacorral. She is a humble woman and with her effort, has been able to acquire a house which was built of rustic material. She wants to improve the quality of her life, little by little. She is mainly a farmer and grows potatoes and maca (a root that is supposed to be very healthy-often sold in powder) in big quantities. Thanks to her effort she was able to get 4 hectares of productive fields and she tends to them carefully every day since they are her main income. Also she is raising 30 sheep and 2 pigs and when they are fattened, she will sell them to the butchers who come to the market in Acostambo on Fridays where she goes to sell.

Right now her wish is to save up enough to be able to fulfill her main goal. This is the sixth loan with MFP where she is waiting for their help to finalize her plans. She promises to make all her payments on time. She is happy to be part of the association because the members are responsible and united. Sonia will use the requested money to improve the roof on her house with more resistant material.
