Susy
33-year-old Susy is a tenacious single mother. She has a 13-year-old daughter who is in the city of Lima studying. Susy lives in her parents' home in Tapo-Tarma district. She owns her own farmland where she grows crops with the help of staff who she hires. She grows potatoes, peas, beans and carrots and sells her crops in the wholesale market in Tarma. Susy learned this business from her parents, aunts and uncles, who she watched working the land since she was a young girl. "I grow a bit of everything. Everything I grow makes me good money, especially the potatoes and peas" she comments. In this way, she is able to send a certain amount of money each month to her daughter and help support her parents in providing for the household. In all the time she has been a farmer, Susy's main problem in continuing to work has been a lack of capital. For this reason, she limited herself to growing a small quantity of vegetables. She handled this situation with the support of family members and loans. This mother hopes to save up enough money to travel to Lima and live there alongside her daughter, without neglecting her parents.

This will be Susy's eighth loan from MFP, to whom she feels grateful for the support they have given her. For this reason, she pledges to make her repayments on time. WIth her loan money, Susy will buy pea seeds for 800 soles and she will use the rest to obtain barnyard manure.

Susy cuenta con terrenos propios de cultivo, en ellos siembra con la ayuda de personal al que contrata: papas, arvejas, habas y zanahorias, productos que vende en el mercado mayorista de Tarma.
Esta actividad la aprendió de sus padres y tíos, a quienes vio desde niña trabajar la tierra.
“Me conviene sembrar de todo, con cada uno de obtengo buen dinero, especialmente con la papa y las arvejas”, comenta. De esa manera ella puede mandar cierto dinero cada mes a su hija y apoyar en la mantención del hogar de sus padres. En todo su tiempo de agricultora, su principal problema, para continuar sembrando ha sido la falta de capital, por ello se limitaba a cultivar una pequeña cantidad de verduras. Susy manejó esta situación con el apoyo de familiares y préstamos. Esta madre espera, ahorrar el dinero suficiente para viajar a Lima y residir ahí, al lado de su hija y sin descuidar a sus padres.
