Mila
Mila, 32 years old, is a kind woman. She has lived with her husband, Etson, for 12 years. They have two children, Andrés and Sami, who they look after in her mother's house in Hualahoyo. Mila is happy that she still has her mother's support. Her husband works as a driver, transporting food to cities throughout the country. His work is very demanding, so he only manages to see her for a couple of days at a time. However, a few months ago she planned to open a welding workshop with her mother where her husband could work. Then he would be closer to his family.

Meanwhile, she is engaged in agriculture, cultivating potatoes, corn and beans, on both her own and rented land. She sells the harvested produce in Huancayo. During her 12 years experience in farming, she has also raised young animals such as chickens, pigs, guinea pigs, and cows, which she fattens up and then sells at a higher price.

She belongs to the communal bank, "Hualahoyo al progreso", and this is their ninth loan with Kiva Field Partner, MFP, on whom they are depending for collaboration to realize their plans. For their part, they promise to make the repayments, as with previous loans. Mila is pleased to be part of this group, because all the members are responsible and very supportive. On receiving your support, Mila will invest the requested money in the purchase of natural fertilizers for growing potatoes.

Mila, de 32 años es una mujer amable. Vive junto a Etson, su esposo desde hace 12 años. Ambos tienen 2 hijos: Andrés y Sami a los que cuidan en casa de su mamá, ubicada en la localidad de Hualahoyo. Ella se siente dichosa, pues aún tiene el apoyo de su mamá. Su esposo trabaja como chofer trasladando alimentos en todas las ciudades del país. Su trabajo es muy sacrificado, por eso solo la visita durante un par de días. Pero hace algunos meses planeó con su mamá abrir un taller de soldadura, donde su esposo podrá trabajar y de esa manera estará más cerca de su familia. Mientras ella se dedica a la agricultura, con la siembra de papa, maíz y habas, en terrenos propios y alquilados, los que en cada cosecha comercializa a la ciudad de Huancayo. En sus 12 años de experiencia en el campo, también se dedica a la crianza de animales menores como gallinas, cerdos, cuyes y vacas, los que engorda para luego vender a un mayor precio. Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Hualahoyo al progreso” y este es el noveno crédito con MFP, donde espera de su colaboración para concretar sus planes. Por otro lado promete cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas, como en anteriores crédito. Además le agrada ser parte de su asociación porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y muy solidarias. Mila, de recibir su apoyo; invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de fertilizantes naturales para sus sembríos de papa.
