Elizabeth
Elizabeth, 28, is a hardworking woman. She lives with Aldo, her husband of 8 years. During this time they have been raising their small daughter, Fiorela, in their own home located in the town of Huachac. Their principal income comes from their harvests of potatoes, carrots, corn and broad beans, which they plant on their own land.

Elizabeth notes that she sells each crop in the capital of the country where she obtains a better price, since the demand is greater. At times when she is washing the carrot harvest in the river, those same buyers collect the crops to market them, since they are delicious and above all healthy.

Elizabeth’s other income derives from cattle raising. She has 6 cows which provide enough milk to make natural yourt. She produces on average 100 liters a week. She says that her secret is in her treatment of the animals; she nurtures them, feeds them nutritionally balanced feed and also provides them with expert care once a month. “I have to take care of them in order to have good results,” she notes.

She belongs to Los Lirios communal bank and this is her seventh loan from MFP. She is happy because she found the help she urgently needed in order to meet her objectives. Also, she is responsible in everything she does and promises to be punctual in making her payments.

Upon receiving your support, she will use the money to buy alfalfa seeds and pay for a fence so that the animals can feed safely.
