Delfina
Delfina, 31, lives with her husband and their two year old twins: Betzi and Bretza. She lives in the company of her parents, children and husband in her parents’ house located in the Yanama Alto settlement in Palca-Tarma District.

She grows potatoes, peas and lima beans. “Planting lima beans and peas is profitable because one does not invest as much as with potatoes and their price is almost always good,” she explains.

She affirms that work in the fields is hard even more so having to endure the rain and cold in her zone but these aren’t obstacles to continue with the struggle. Her daughters are her greatest inspiration and why she trusts that she will reach her goals. Sales are better in the city of Lima so she travels there regularly taking vegetable and potatoes to the wholesale market. She hopes to have good savings so that she can buy a car to get around more easily; to do so she will continue working with the same optimism.

Delfina will get loan #13 from MFP and she is grateful for the support provided all this time. She trusts that she will make her payments punctually like she’s always done.

She belongs to the “Los Manatiales de Yanama” (Yanama’s Springs) communal bank and feels happy to be part of such a responsible, mutually supportive group. If she were to receive the money she will be able to use it to buy four bags of pea seeds and two of lima beans. The rest will be used to buy sacks of organic manure.

Delfina de 31 años convive con su esposo, con quien tiene 2 gemelas de 2 año: Betzi y Bretza. Vive contenta rodeada de sus padres, hijos y esposo en la casa de sus padres ubicada en el caserío de Yanama Alto, distrito de Palca – Tarma. Delfina es una mujer guerrera. Desde los 20 años trabaja en las tierras de cultivo. Siembra papas, arvejas y habas. “Es rentable sembrar habas y arvejas porque no se invierte tanto como la papa y su precio casi siempre es bueno”, explica.
Afirma que el trabajo en el campo es muy cansado, más aún soportando las lluvias y el frío de su zona, pero no son inconvenientes para seguir luchando. Sus hijas son su mayor inspiración, por eso confía que alcanzará sus metas. Las ventas son mejores en la ciudad de Lima, así que viaja con constancia llevando verduras y papas al mercado mayorista.
Ella espera contar con buenos ahorros para adquirir un auto y así trasladarse con facilidad, para ello seguirá trabajando con el mismo optimismo. Delfina obtendría su crédito número 13 de MFP, agradece el apoyo brindado en todo este tiempo. Confía en que pagará puntualmente las cuotas como lo hizo anteriormente. Pertenece al banco comunal “Los Manantiales de Yanama” y se siente contenta de formar parte de un grupo sólido y responsable. De recibir el dinero podrá destinarlo en la compra de 4 bolsas de semillas de arvejas y 2 de habas. Lo restante será para comprar bolsas de abonos orgánicos.
