Nancy
Nancy, 23, and her husband, Edner, have two sons, Willian and Franco. They live in the house they built on inherited land in the rural community of Casacoto.

For seven years Nancy has been farming her own property and rented land. She grows peas, potates and beans. "My land is quite far, about a 40-minute walk up the hills", she says. She started selling her produce in nearby cities, but over time realized that sales were better in the city of Lima. Since then she travels frequently to take her produce there. This month she will begin sowing potatoes in large quantities, and as she does not want to waste time, she plans to buy fertilizers and seeds. "The work is intense but gratifying", she states.

This is her fourth loan through MFP, where she is thankful to have had educational seminars and the opportunity to grow in her communal bank "Sembradoras de Casacotos".

Nancy will use the loan to buy potato seeds of the "única" and "yungay" varieites, as well as bags of fertilizer.

Nancy tiene 23 años, su pareja es Edner, con quien tiene dos hijos: Wilian y Franco. Juntos viven en la casa que levantaron en un terreno heredado y se ubicada en el caserío de Casacoto.
Ya son con 7 años que Nancy se dedica a la agricultura en terrenos propios y arrendados. Produce arveja, papa y habas; “mis chacras están bien lejos, a casi 40 minutos subiendo las lomas”, menciona. Inició vendiendo sus productos en la ciudad más cercana, pero con el tiempo se dio cuenta que las ventas eran mejores en la ciudad de Lima. Desde entonces viaja con frecuencia llevando sus productos para allá. Este mes se inicia la siembra de papas en grandes cantidades; no dejará pasar este momento, por eso invertirá en fertilizantes y semillas. “El trabajo será intenso pero gratificante”, dice.

Este es el cuarto crédito que tiene con MFP, entidad a la que agradece por las charlas educativas y la oportunidad de crecer dentro de su banco comunal “Sembradoras de Casacotos”.
Nancy invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de semillas de papas de los tipos “única” y “yungay”, también comprará bolsas de fertilizantes.
