53-year-old Teresa is an enthusiastic woman. She is married to Raymundo and the couple have six children. They only live with three of their children who are 30, 20 and 16 years old. Their home is located in the rural part of Santa Clara, in Husasahuasi district.

Teresa's business is farming. She started out in this line of work 25 years ago, growing potatoes on her 6 hectares of farmland. She sows large quantities of 'Primereza', 'Yungay' and 'Única' potatoes thanks to the support of her husband and children. She says that she also has 5 bulls that she uses to plow the soil and which she hires out to other farmers for the same purpose. In addition, she has 13 dairy cows which provide her with good cheese that she sells on Sundays in the market in Tarma. She makes 3 to 4 soles for each whole cheese. She tells us that she started working very hard when she was very young in order to provide for her children. Her two youngest children are studying in the city of Tarma. For this reason, she rented a house where they live peacefully and she heads over there to visit them.

This will be Teresa's 12th loan from MFP which she will receive thanks to your help. She pledges to be punctual in making her monthly repayments. Teresa belongs to the "Trabajemos Unidos" (Let's Work Together) community bank and she feels happy to belong to the group because of their supportive work. She will buy sacks of organic fertilizer to spread over her potato crops and invest all her money in this.
