Ada
Ada, 27, and her husband, Edwin, have two children: Daniela, four, and Dayro, eight months. They live in the house her husband inherited in the rural community of Casacoto, Tarma.

For five years she has earned a living in agriculture and supported her family, for which she wants a better future. Her specialty crop is the potato in the varieties of "Chanchán", "Tomasa" and others. She also grows peas, beans, corn, etc., which she sells to the wholesale market in the city. But when she has a large production, she takes it to Lima (capital). "In Lima one does not lose money because everyone knows the Tarma potatoes are good", she says. Thanks to the support of her husband, she can dedicate much work and sacrifice to her crops, since many times the rain and intense cold can get in her way. It is now the important sowing season and she will invest in potato seeds.

This is her third loan through MFP and she is committed to paying it back on time. Also, she belongs to the communal bank "Sembradoras de Casacoto", which she enjoys because the members are friendly.

Ada will use the loan to buy bags of organic fertilizer (120 PEN each), and 20 sacks of potato seeds.

Ada tiene 27 años, su pareja es Edwin, con quien tiene dos hijos; Daniela de 4 años y Dayro de 8 meses. Ellos viven en la casa que su pareja heredó y se ubica en el caserío de Casacoto, Tarma.
Hace 5 años que se dedica a la agricultura. Actividad con la que mantiene a su familia y con la que avizora un mejor futuro. Su especialidad es la producción de papa, de las variedades: “Canchán”, “Tomasa” y otras. Así también siembra otros productos como arvejas, habas, maíz, etc.; los cuales lleva a vender al mercado mayorista de la ciudad. Pero cuando su producción es mayor, la lleva hasta Lima (capital). “En Lima no se pierde, todos saben que las papas de Tarma son buenas”, menciona. Gracias al apoyo de su pareja trabaja sus cultivos con ahínco y sacrificio, ya que muchas veces las lluvias y el intenso frío tratan de impedir su labor. Ahora es la temporada de siembra grande, por ello invertirá en la compra de semilla de papa.

Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, por ello se compromete en ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Además, pertenece al banco comunal “Sembradoras de Casacoto”, donde se siente contenta de tener socias amigables.
Ada invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de bolsas de abono (de 120 soles cada una) y guano de corral. También comprará 20 sacos de semilla de papa.
