Esther is 19 years old. She has lived with her siblings and parents her whole life in Tambo Paccha in the house bought by her father. In spite of her youth she grows various crops . From a young age she learned from her parents how to work the land and earn a living from it. 'I really like to help my parents, and I enjoy being out in the peaceful countryside,' she says. For these reasons she she started growing potatoes, peas, beans, and other vegetables in her parents' fields. With help from her siblings she also spreads fertilizer on the fields as they always do. Now she is in the main planting season so she wants to invest all her money so that in January she will have a good harvest. She already has a buyer for the produce in the town.

Esther belongs to the Productores Community Bank and this is her fifth loan with MFP. Over this time she has had many benefits from the loans such as increasing production of milk and produce which has led to an increased income. She promises to make her repayments on time.

Esther plans to use the loan money to buy 20 bags of natural fertilizer to spread on her potato fields.

Esther tiene 19 años. Desde hace 19 años vive en la localidad de Tambo Paccha, en la casa que compró su padre, allí vive en compañía de sus hermanos y padres.
A pesar de su corta edad se dedica a la siembra de diversos productos. Desde niña le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra y a vivir de ella, “me gusta mucho poder ayudar a mis padres, disfruto del campo, es tranquilo”, afirma. Es por ello que en los terrenos que tienen sus padres comenzó a sembrar papa, alverja, habas y otras hortalizas, las que abona con ayuda de sus hermanos, quienes constantemente se encuentran fertilizando y sembrando sus terrenos. Ahora, se encuentra en la siembra grande, por ello quiere invertir la mayor cantidad de capital que tiene, pues sabe que en la cosecha de enero, podrá obtener buenos resultados, pues ya tiene comprador en la ciudad.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Productores” y este es su quinto crédito con MFP. Durante todos estos años logró obtener grandes beneficios, como mejorar su producción de leche y la siembra, que lograron que aumente sus ganancias. Por ese motivo promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas.
Esther invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de 20 sacos de fertilizantes naturales para distribuirlos entre sus cultivos de papa.
