Rrisca
Rrisca is 60 years old. She is married to Gerardo, with whom she has seven children. They live in their own house in Pueblo Pardo, an annex of the district of Chanchamayo. In spite of her age, Rrisca doesn't hesitate to take up the machete and clean the weeds from her plantings or take up the spade to cultivate the land. Agriculture has been, since she was a child, her sustenance and now that of her family.

On her own land she plants carambolas, avocados, cocoa, and coffee. "The advantage of planting so many crops is that I receive income in different months of the year, since they have definite seasons," she explains.

Gerardo cannot exert himself much because of his age, so their son Ever, who is 30, helps him with such difficult work.

At the same time, Rrisca has a little kiosk where she sells candies and soft drinks, which she opened recently.

She will not have the same energy in the future, so she thought about setting up her business for security in her old age. This will be her seventh loan, which, thanks to their help, she will obtain through MFP. She will be punctual and reliable in he payments. On her part, she feels a great endorsement from belonging to "Los Caramboleros," her communal bank. On receiving the loan, she will buy soft drinks, candies, and some groceries to stock her recently opened kiosk.

Rrisca de 60 años de edad, es una mujer casada con Gerardo, con quien tiene 7 hijos. Vive en una casa propia en Pueblo Pardo, anexo del distrito de Chanchamayo. A pesar de su edad, Rrisca no duda en coger el machete y limpiar la maleza de sus sembríos o coger la pala para labrar la tierra. La agricultura ha sido, desde niña, su sustento y ahora el de su familia.
En sus terrenos propios siembra: carambolas, palta, cacao y café. “La ventaja de sembrar tantos productos es que recibo ingresos en distintos meses del año, ya que sus temporadas son fijas”, explica.
Gerardo, no puede esforzarse mucho por la edad, por eso, Ever su hijo de 30 años le ayuda en tan arduo trabajo.
Al mismo tiempo, Rrisca cuenta con un pequeño kiosco de golosinas y gaseosas, que abrió hace poco.
Ella no tendrá las mismas energías, mas adelante, por ello piensa consolidar su negocio, para asegurar su ancianidad. Sería el crédito número 7 que gracias a su ayuda obtendría de MFP. Será puntual y constante en el pago de las cuotas. Por su parte, siente un gran respaldo de pertenecer a “Los Caramboleros”, su banco comunal. De darse el préstamo, podrá comprar gaseosas, golosinas y algunos abarrotes para surtir el, recientemente, abierto kiosco.
