Julia
Julia is 41 years old and lives with three of her four children, who she looks after in her parents house which is located in Chacas. She is a very timid woman by nature, and from very early on she has taken on the role of father and mother for her children. She began to sow corn and potatoes on her land, which she looks after with great dedication since they are her only source of income. Her main source of income comes from the dried corn she grows. It is good for toasting as a type of appetizer. There are very few famers who work using this process, and for this reason she has a good income.

She also has animals (pigs and chickens) which she looks after and uses for her own consumption. She likes living in the countryside very much, and for this reason she wants to increase her income so that she can sow in a greater quantity, since the money invested in seeding is greater.

She is part of the group “Sarita Colonia” and this is her sixth loan with MFP. Thanks to the opportunities they offer, she will be able to improve her business. For this reason she promises to be punctual with all her repayments. She likes working with the Association, where all the people are responsible and cooperative.

Julia is asking for the loan so that she can buy fertilizers and corn seeds for the next season.

Julia tiene 41 años, vive en compañía de tres de sus cuatro hijos, a los que cuida en la casa de sus padres ubicada en la localidad de Chacas.
Se caracteriza por ser una mujer tímida, y desde muy joven asumió los roles de padre y madre para sus hijo. Comenzó a sembrar maíz y papa en sus terrenos, los cuales cuida con mucha dedicación, ya que son el único sustento económico que tiene. Su principal ingreso económico proviene del secado del maíz que siembra, éste sirve para tostar, como una especie de aperitivo. Son muy pocos los agricultores que se dedican a realizar ese proceso, por ello que obtiene buenas ganancias. Asimismo, tiene animales (cerdos y gallinas), que cuida y le sirven para su consumo propio. Gusta mucho de vivir en el campo, por ello desea incrementar sus ingresos para sembrar en mayor cantidad, ya que el dinero invertido en la siembra es mayor.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Sarita colonia” y este es su sexto crédito con MFP. Agradece la oportunidad que le brindan, ya que podrá mejorar su negocio. Por ello promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas, pues le gusta trabajar en su asociación, donde todos son personas responsables y solidarias.
Julia invertirá el dinero que ahora solicita en la compra de fertilizantes y semilla de maíz para su próxima campaña.
