Milanda
Milanda is 28 years old. She has lived in her mother's house for 5 years with her husband Zósimo and their three children.
While her husband works buying and selling animals, which he fattens up and later sell sin the area market, Milanda takes care of the crops. She has 9 years experience growing potatoes and corn and she really likes working in the fields. What she doesn't like is having to get up early, feel the cold and do a lot of physical labor. “Sometimes we suffer working in the fields" she affirms. But she sees her hard work rewarded in every harvest, since she knows she will be paid for her hardwork and constancy.

She belongs to the “Puntaman Puririsum Sachamarca” communal bank. In English this means “Let's Get Ahead Sachamarca”. This is her sixth loan with MFP and she really likes the work she does in the group. In every meeting she learns new ideas for her crops, since everyone helps each other an cooperates. That is why she promises to make her payments on time.

Milanda will invest the money in buying 195 sacks of organic fertilizer for her next potato and corn crops.
