Olinda tiene 37 años, tiene dos hijos; de 15 y 2 años de edad. Su pareja es Walter, con quien piensa casarse pronto. Olinda y su familia viven en la casa de su tía, en el caserío de Huaylahuichan.
Ella cuenta con terrenos propios donde siembra arvejas, papas y maíz; “en otros meses también cultivo flores y lechugas, cuando tengo chacras libres”, menciona. Olinda cuenta que a veces en la siembra de maíz sólo recupera lo invertido, “eso se debe a las heladas y enfermedades y por no saber cómo aplicar los insecticidas”, agrega; pero con las arvejas no tiene quejas. Adicionalmente, obtiene más ingresos por la venta de cuyes, pues hace 5 años se dedica a la crianza de estos animalitos. Ahora Olinda llevará a su hijo mayor hacia la ciudad de Lima para que empiece a estudiar allá, por eso trabaja con mucho esfuerzo para lograr sus metas.

Este es su crédito número 14 con MFP y se siente muy comprometida de pagar las cuotas mensuales a tiempo. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Nueva Esperanza de Huaylahuichán”, donde colabora con las actividades como la preparación de comidas, los ahorros puntuales y otros.
Olinda invertirá este dinero en la compra de semillas de arveja y bolsas de fertilizante. Todo el préstamo tendrá fines agrícolas.
