Santa
Santa is 59 years old, she is married with Manuel and they have three children, who are economically independent and who have already formed their own families. They now live alone in the house they bought 40 years ago.
Santa enjoys very much working in the country and breathing fresh air. She mainly produces corn, barley and broad beans, and she pays rent for the lands where she plants her crops. She says: “In all these years I have not been able to buy my own farming lands, but is it not too late and I will buy my lands now that I don’t have so many expenses”. Her best product is corn and she is now harvesting it; her secret is to dry corn and sell it dried, so that it can be used to prepare different appetizers; and in this way she gets the best selling price in the market.

She is a member of the “Pueblo Nuevo” (New Town) Group, and this is her seventh loan with MFP. She feels at ease working with her Communal Bank, where she receives advice to improve her crops, as everyone is a farmer just like herself.
Santa will use the loan she is requesting to buy corn seeds and manure and to pay day laborers that will help her till the soil.

Santa tiene 59 años, está casada con Manuel, con quien tiene tres hijos que ya son independientes y ya conformaron sus propias familias. Ahora ellos viven solos en la casa que compraron hace 40 años.
Santa gusta mucho de trabajar en el campo y poder respirar el aire puro. Sus productos principales son: el maíz, cebada y habas, los que siembra en terrenos arrendados. “Durante todo este tiempo no pude comprar mis propios terrenos agrícolas, pero no es tarde y ahora que ya no tengo muchos gastos, compraré mis terrenos”, comenta. El principal es el maíz, ahora lo está cosechando, su secreto es secar el maíz para venderlo seco, así sirve para preparar diferentes aperitivos. De esta manera obtiene mejor precio de venta en el mercado.

Ella pertenece al grupo “Pueblo nuevo” y este su el séptimo crédito con MFP. Se siente bien trabajando en su banco comunal, donde recibe consejos para mejorar sus cultivos, pues todos son agricultores como ella.
Santa invertirá este dinero en la compra de semilla de maíz, fertilizantes naturales y el pago a los peones que le ayudarán a voltear la tierra.
