Flora
Flora is 51 years old. She lives in a home she bought 32 years ago in the area of Yanamarca. There she built a family with her spouse Fidel and her seven children, of whom only three still live at home; Jones, Cinthia, y Diana.

At the beginning she only sowed potatoes, olluco (a Peruvian tuber), barley, and broad beans in her fields that she had irrigated, which is to say the ones close to the river which could be irrigated and fertilized the most easily. Currently, she is still involved in agriculture, but her most consistent soure of income is in raising poultry, which she has 32 years of experience in keeping. She now has five pigs, two bulls, and two pregnant cows. For this reason, she has much less milk production, "I cannot stop producing milk, I need to buy a milk cow to not lessen my production, and when my cows give birth, then I'll have really great production, since their milk supply will greatly increase," she comments. Now, she is concentrating on this project, since she already has customers who buy her milk and she can't let them down.

She is a member of the community bank “Corazón de Jesús” and this is her second loan with MFP. She really likes the work that she does with the association, since she receives support from the other members who really look out for each other. “At every meeting, we fulfill our financial obligations responsibly," she notes.

Flora will invest the asked for funds in buying a milch cow of good stock to increase her profits and maintain her milk production.

Flora tiene 51 años. Vive en la casa que compró, hace 32 años, en la localidad de Yanamarca. Ahí conformó su familia, junto a su esposo Fidel y sus siete hijos, de los cuales ahora sólo vive con tres de ellos: Jones, Cinthia y Diana.

Al comienzo sólo se dedicaba a la siembra de papa, olluco, cebada y habas en sus terrenos agrícolas que tienen riego, es decir están cerca del río y pueden ser regados y fertilizados con mayor facilidad. En la actualidad se sigue dedicando a está actividad, pero el ingreso económico constante que tiene es de la ganadería, ya tiene 32 años de experiencia en la crianza, posee en la actualidad cinco cerdos, dos toros y dos vacas preñadas. Por está razón quedó disminuida la producción de leche, “no puedo dejar de producir, tengo que comprar una vaca lechera para no bajar la producción, ya cuando mis vacas den cría, tendré una buena producción pues ellas duplicarán la leche”, comenta. Ahora, se concentra en ese proyecto, pues ya tiene clientes que compran la leche, a quienes no puede defraudar.

Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Corazón de Jesús” y este es su segundo crédito con MFP. Le gusta mucho el trabajo que realiza dentro de su asociación, pues recibe el apoyo de sus integrantes, quienes velan por el bienestar de cada uno. “En cada reunión siempre aportamos las cuotas con responsabilidad”, afirma.
Flora invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de una vaca lechera de buena raza, para aumentar su ganando y seguir su producción de leche.
