Victoria
Victoria is 50 years old. She is married to Gerardo, with whom she has six children but now they live with only three of the children. She makes a living in agriculture, with the planting of potatoes, broad beans and peas. “This time I plan to plant the “Yungay” potato, because it is one of the most requested,” she mentions. This month she begins the planting and for that she needs the support in order to continue with her growth. She also sells beef, lamb, pork, etc. And as in her area there isn’t much vehicle traffic she has to acquire her merchandise from the city in order to do business with it in two days. But this month she is giving priority to the cultivation of potatoes.

She belongs to the communal bank “Punray avanzando” and this is her tenth loan with MFP. She promises to be punctual in the payment of the installments. She also mentions that she likes her group because they all share the same interests. Victoria will invest this money in the purchase of 15 sacks of potato seeds and the rest will be to purchase bags of fertilizer.

Victoria tiene 50 años, está casada con Gerardo, con quien tiene seis hijos, pero ahora sólo viven con tres de ellos.
Ella se dedica a la agricultura, con la siembra de papas, habas y arvejas. “Esta vez pienso sembrar papa “Yungay”, porque es una de las más solicitadas”, menciona. Este mes inicia las siembras por ello requiere de apoyo para seguir con su crecimiento. Además vende carne de res, oveja, cerdo, etc. Y como en su zona no hay mucho tránsito de vehículos tiene que adquirir su mercadería de la ciudad para negociarla en dos días. Pero este mes está dándole prioridad a sus cultivos de papa.

Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Punray avanzando” y este es su décimo crédito con MFP. Promete ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas, y además menciona que le agrada su grupo porque todos ellos comparten los mismos intereses.
Victoria invertirá este dinero en la compra de 15 sacos de semilla de papa, y lo restante será para adquirir bolsas de fertilizantes.
