Anastacia
Anastacia, 44, formed her family ten years ago with Paulino, the father of her six children. She now lives with two children who are still school age in a house of her own in the Yanama Alto settlement, Palca-Tarma District.

She’s been farming for 23 years growing peas and all varieties of potato. According to her, she has several parcels of farmland located in her district and along the Peruvian coast (she grows potatoes there with seeds she takes from her birthplace). Mid-year which is when harvests are large she heads to the city of Lima to sell what she produces. Another activity that produces benefits for her is raising livestock.

She tills the land with help from her two bullocks and she sells the milk her cows produce and also makes cheese with it. In addition, she opened a grocery and basic staples store at home a year ago. She comments that she does very well in all her activities.

Yanama is a settlement with scarce transportation which makes transportation and sale of her products difficult which is why she wants to save up what’s necessary to buy a vehicle to be able to transport her products more easily.

This would be loan #7 received from MFP and she hopes for support from all of you so that she can continue toward her objectives. On her part, she pledges to be punctual with her monthly installment payments.

She belongs to the “Los Manantiales de Yanama” (Yanama’s Springs) communal bank and feels happy to be an active member of this group of responsible people.

Anastacia will use her money to buy two bags of pea seeds of the “Super” variety that cost 600 soles each. She will invest the rest in sacks of organic manure.
