Dorotea
Dorotea is 51 years old and has 9 children, and now she lives alone with 5 of them.

She has worked in agriculture since she was 22 years old. Her children, since they were old enough to help her, have done that without hesitation. She grows peas and potatoes in her two hectares of land which she got after several years of work. In order to sell each harvest she has loyal customers in the city. But because the responsibility of supporting her children alone is too much, she also sells cheese products. Her days are busy with work, but she's used to that pace. Now she's starting the planting season, and she's not thinking of anything else.

She belongs to the bank "Punray avanzado," and this is her 10th loan with MFP who she thanks for this opportunity and promises to be punctual in the repayment of her loan like she was with previous loans. The 300 soles that she needs now are to buy potato and pea seeds as well as 10 bags of fertilizer.

Dorotea tiene 51 años, tiene nueve hijos, pero ahora sólo vive con cinco de ellos.
Ella se dedica a la agricultura desde que tenía 22 años. Sus hijos, que ya tienen edad para apoyarla, lo hacen sin dudarlo. Cultiva arvejas y papas en sus dos hectáreas de terreno, los que consiguió gracias a varios años de trabajo. Para la venta de cada cosecha ya tiene clientes fijos en la ciudad. Pero como la responsabilidad de mantener a sus hijos sola era demasiada, también se dedicó a la elaboración de quesos. Sus días son agitados y de mucho trabajo, pero ya está acostumbrada a este ritmo. Ahora inicia la temporada de siembra y ella no piensa quedarse atrás.

Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Punray avanzando” y este es su décimo crédito con MFP, donde agrade esta oportunidad y promete ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas como en los créditos anteriores.
Los 3000 soles que ahora necesita son para comprar semillas de papa y arveja, y diez bolsas de fertilizantes.
