Alicia
Luz is 31, and lives with her partner Aquiles. They have two children: Lucila is 13, and Talia is 7. They live in their own house, located in the settlement of Cumutay, in Huasahuasi district. She is a farmer,and grows potatoes, peas, and corn. She also raises animals such as cows and bulls.

From the cows she gets a good quantity of milk for making cheeses. She sells the cheese in the city of Huasihuasi, and gets good earnings. She has been farming and raising livestock for more than 20 years now. What she likes best about her work is putting into practice what her parents taught her. Luz sells her products in the wholesale markets in Tarma and Huancayo, and to do this she pays for transporting the sacks of potatoes.

Farmwork is tiring, and that's why she hires hands to speed up the job. She is the one who takes on the job of preparing the food for her partner Aquiles, and for the day laborers. That is the routine of farming, but she likes what she does, and that is why she will keep working for a long time.

She belongs to the "Pioneros de Cumutay" communal bank, and this would be her sixth loan with MFP, so she is hoping for support from all of you, to succeed with her plans. In addition, she promises to make her installment payments on time.

She will use the money to buy five bags of pea seeds, at 500 soles each, to begin planting. She will allocate the remainder for paying the laborers that she will hire.

Ella se dedica a la agricultura. Por ello trabaja en sus cultivos de papa, arveja y maíz; asimismo cría animales como vacas y toros. De las vacas saca una buena cantidad de leche para la elaboración de quesos, los que vende en la ciudad de Huasahuasi, obteniendo buenas ganancias. Ya tiene más de 20 años dedicándose a la agricultura y ganadería. Y lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es poner en práctica lo que sus padres le enseñaron. Luz negocia sus productos en el mercado mayorista de Tarma y de Huancayo, para esto invierte en el traslado de los sacos de papas. El trabajo del campo es cansado, por eso contrata personal operario para agilizar las faenas, por su parte, ella se encarga de preparar los alimentos para su Aquiles, su pareja, y para los jornaleros. Esa es su rutina agraria, pero le gusta lo que hace, por eso continuará con su labor por mucho tiempo. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Pioneros de Cumutay” y éste sería su crédito número seis con MFP, donde espera el apoyo de todos ustedes para lograr sus planes.
