Heraclia
Heraclia is 54 years old and has five children, but only two of them still live with her since she must provide for their education. She obtained her house seven years ago and it is located in the town of Ataura.


Heraclia has 15 years of experience in agriculture and has been able to accomplish the goals that she has set for herself. Despite having only finished elementary school, she was able to start a job at an experimental center at one of the local universities where she produces all type of dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, “manjar blanco” (a caramel sauce made with milk), and other items. Heraclia also raises sheep since the area where she lives is known for its climate and pastures. Her job generates a good salary, which allows her to live comfortably. In addition, she buys and sells animals such as chickens, guinea pigs, and sheep that she looks after with great care. “I also grow the fodder so that they will have something to eat and they are well fed,” concludes Heraclia. She now receives many orders for guinea pigs from the capital of Lima since there is greater demand due to the patron saint festivals that take place this month.


Heraclia is a member of the Communal Bank “Nuevo Amanecer” (New Dawn) and this is her second loan with MFP. She enjoys working with her group because the other members are responsible and always supportive of her at each meeting. For this reason, she promises to be punctual with her payments. Heraclia will invest the loan she requested in the purchase of more guinea pigs since she has many orders to fulfill.
