Claudia
Claudia, 48, is married to Vidal and they have seven children but only two of them and her little granddaughter live with them in her own house that they bought 27 years ago.

She works in agriculture and animal husbandry. She heads out to her ranch every morning to care for her cows and to make cheese with the milk they produce. But the activity she’s been in for more than 15 years is agriculture. She has her own fields where she grows corn, potatoes and peas. “I plant in quantity which is why I need capital because I won’t see any income for several months until harvest time which is when I expect to have good profits,” she comments. This is why she cares for her crops very carefully because she depends on them very much to obtain good profits. Her secret is to sell her crops in the nation’s capital where she already has steady customers.

She belongs to the “Pueblo Nuevo” (New Town) communal bank and this is her 10th MFP loan. She feels good working in her communal bank because she gets good advice there on how to improve her crops because they are all farmers like her. On this occasion, Claudia will invest in the purchase of 7 sacks of pea seeds and 65 sacks of natural fertilizer for her next potato and pea crops.

Claudia tiene 48 años, está casada con Vidal, con quien tiene siete hijos, pero ahora sólo viven con dos de ellos y su pequeña nieta. Su casa es propia, la compraron hace 27 años.
Ella se dedica a la ganadería y a la agricultura. Todas las mañanas se dirige a su rancho donde cuida de sus vacas y con la leche que producen elabora quesos. Pero la actividad que realizó por más de 15 años es la agricultura, tiene sus propios terrenos agrícolas donde siembra maíz, papa y alverja. “Siembro en cantidad, por ello necesito capital, ya que el dinero no se ve, por meses, hasta la cosecha, donde vendo mis productos”, comenta. Es así que cuida mucho de sus cultivos, pues depende mucho de ellos para obtener buenas ganancias. Su secreto es comercializar sus cosechas en la capital del país, donde ya tiene clientes fijos.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Pueblo nuevo” y este es su décimo crédito con MFP. Se siente bien trabajando en su banco comunal, allí recibe consejos para mejorar sus plantaciones, pues todos son agricultores como ella.
Esta vez, Claudia invertirá en la compra de 7 bolsas de semilla de alverja y 65 sacos de fertilizantes naturales para sus próximas siembras de papa y alverja.
