Eddy
Eddy is 34 years old and lives in a house that she inherited from her mother-in-law nine years ago. She resides in the town of Yanamarca with her family, which consists of her husband Raúl and their five children.


Eddy’s husband is in charge of looking after, managing, and selling their crops of potatoes, quinoa, and barley. In the meantime, she is in charge of looking after the animals. She owns bulls, sheep, and pigs. Eddy’s job consists of buying the animals when they are still small or if they are malnourished. After spending time to care for and feed the animals, Eddy is able to see them grow and regain their vitality before they are sold at the market in the city. She has eight years of experience in this type of work. It helps that she has good buyers who always come to her house to see if the animals have matured. “There have been a few opportunities in which buyers will pay for the animals in advance,” she says.


Eddy belongs to the Communal Bank “Corazón de Jesús” (Heart of Jesus) and this will be her fifth loan with MFP. She greatly enjoys working with her association because she receives support from the other members, who are looking out for each other’s welfare. “In each of our meetings, we always support one another in our payments with responsibility,” confirms Eddy.


Her loan will be invested in the purchase of two bulls for fattening.
