Nancy
32-year-old Nancy is married to Teófilo and they have three children: 16-year-old Morelia, 8-year-old Aymer and 4-year-old Cristian. The family live in their own home, in Patay, in Palca-Tarma district. Nancy is an exemplary woman. Like all mothers who live in the country, she has to divide her time between caring for her children and farming.

Nancy grows peas, 'Única' potatoes and gladioli. "Every four months I sow two bags of pea seeds which produces a harvest of 30 sacks", she says. She negotiates the sale of all her crops in the wholesale market in Tarma.

Nancy says that she makes more income from selling her gladioli because there is a lot of demand in the cities of Huancayo, Lima and La Merced. Her gladioli sales are most profitable in the months of May and November.

Over time, Nancy hopes to have more money in her savings account so that she can acquire her own farmland and no longer have to pay rent. This will be her seventh loan from MFP and she pledges to be punctual in making her repayments. "Los Picaflores de Patay" is the name of her community bank and she feels happy with the work they do.

Nancy will invest her loan money in buying two bags of pea seeds for 1,200 soles. She will use the rest to buy sacks of organic fertilizer.

Nancy de 32 años está casada con Teófilo con quién tiene 3 hijos: Morelia de 16, Aymer de 8 y Cristian de 4 años. Toda esta familia vive en una casa propia en el anexo de Patay, distrito de Palca – Tarma. Nancy es una mujer ejemplar. Como toda madre del campo tiene que distribuir su tiempo para atender a sus hijos y la agricultura.
Siembra arvejas, papas de la variedad “Única” y flores de gladiolos. “Cada 4 meses siembro 2 bolsas de semillas de arvejas, de las que cosecho 30 sacos”, menciona. Toda su producción la negocia en el mercado mayorista de Tarma.
Así también afirma que con la venta de los gladiolos obtiene más ingresos, por su gran demanda para las ciudades de Huancayo, Lima y La Merced. Las ventas de los gladiolos son más beneficiosas en los meses de mayo y noviembre.
Con el tiempo espera tener más dinero de sus ahorros para adquirir terrenos propios, para ya no pagar el arriendo. Éste sería su crédito número 7 que obtendría de MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. “Los Picaflores de Patay”, es el nombre de su banco comunal y se siente satisfecha con el trabajo desplegado.
Invertirá el dinero de su crédito en la compra de 2 bolsas de semillas de arvejas con 1200 soles; lo restante lo destinará a la compra de bolsas de abonos orgánicos.
