Flora
21-year-old Flora is an admirable young woman. She lives together with her parents and her brother Marvin who she supports. They live in their own home, in the town of Jutumpampa. Three years ago, Flora started sowing crops independently as she believed that she had learned what she needed to learn from her parents. Since then she has been renting farmland where she sows potatoes, olluco (a native tuber) and peas. She cares for her crops with a lot of commitment and hard work. It is important to get rid of the weeds that grow between the furrows. It is also important to fertilize and irrigate as the quality of her crops really depends on this. In spite of her short age, Flora is very intelligent and lucky in business. She travels to the capital city with her crops herself and sells them to wholesale buyers who know her. She also raises cows and pigs which she fattens and then sells. This makes her good profits. Now she plans to save up as she would like to study and become a professional.

Flora belongs to the "Jatumpampa al Progreso" community bank and this is her second loan from MFP. She hopes to receive your cooperation so that she can carry out her plans. For her part, she pledges to make her repayments on time. She enjoys being a member of her community bank because all the members are responsible and supportive people. With your support, Flora will invest the money she has requested in buying natural fertilizers for her potato crops that she has just sown.
