Balentina
Balentina is 54 years old. She's a humble woman who lives in the company of her husband, Humberto. They have two children, Marco Antonio and Ana María, whom they care for in their own home. Her little home is found in the highlands; she has to descend to the river, where her crops are to take care of them, fertilizing and cultivating them. Her main crops are potatos and corn, which she plants in her own fields and at each harvest, she sells them in the city where her husband works for the government. It is for this reason that she already know her main customers, who offer her good earnings, since her products are natural and nutritious, as she allows the soil to rest so that it produces a better crop.

She belongs to the group “Sumaq Sonqo” and this is her third loan with MFP. She is grateful for the opportunity that they offer her, since she will be able to improve her business. For this, she promises to be punctual with her monthly payments. She enjoys working with her group, where all are responsible and committed to one another.

Balentina will invest the money in the purchase of natural fertilizers for her next potato crop.
