Angelica
Angélica is 24 years old. Her partner is Julio and the couple have two children: Harinson and Medaly. They live together in their own home, which they both built, in the small village of San Antonio, Tarma.

Angélica has been farming for 20 years, growing potatoes and flowers (gladioli). As the area in which she lives is very well known for its good soil and, therefore, its good crops, potato sellers come to her to negotiate for her harvests. The flowers, meanwhile, are transported to the flower market in the city where buyers come from different towns. Julio, her partner, is also very hard working. Thanks to the bulls that they raise, they are able to plow their land easily. In addition, they hire these animals out to other farmers for 90 soles a day which makes them additional income.

This is Angélica's fifth loan from MFP and she pledges, once again, to make her monthly repayments on time. She belongs to the 'Santa Rosa' community bank and says that she is one of the most punctual members in their meetings.

Angélica will invest this money in buying potato seeds and ten bags of fertilizer. She will also invest in preparing her land for her upcoming planting season.

Angélica tiene 24 años, su pareja es Julio, con quien tiene dos hijos: Harinson y Medaly. Juntos viven en su casa propia, la que ambos construyeron y se ubica en el caserío de San Antonio, Tarma.
Desde los 20 años se dedica a la agricultura, con la producción de papas y flores (gladiolos). Como la zona donde vive es muy famosa por los buenos suelos y por ende por los buenos frutos, los propios comercializadores de papa llegan a sus terrenos agrícolas para negociar su cosecha. Por otro lado, las flores son trasladadas hasta el mercado de flores de la ciudad, a donde llegan compradores de distintas ciudades. Julio, su pareja, también es muy trabajador, gracias a los toros que crían pueden arar la tierra con facilidad. Además alquila a estas bestias a otros agricultores a 90 soles a día, obteniendo ingresos adicionales.

Este es su crédito número 5 con MFP, por eso se compromete, una vez más, en pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Santa Rosa” y menciona ser una de las socias más puntuales en las reuniones.
Angélica invertirá este dinero en la compra de semillas de papas y 10 bolsas de abono, además de invertir en la preparación de sus tierras para la siguiente siembra.
