Victoria
Victoria is 54 years old and is married to Oscar with whom she has two children, only one of whom still lives with them. They bought the house they live in 13 years ago.

When she was a little girl she began to look after her parents' crops, and she used to spend hours with her siblings in the fields. She now has 30 years experience in agriculture and she sows alfalfa, artichokes and potatoes. Victoria's secret is to sell her products in the city of Lima, where the price is a lot higher. She also obtains another income from renting her pastures to farmers to feed their animals. The same pastures also help her to feed her own animals. She has cows, guinea pigs and sheep, which she fattens up to sell occasionally.

She belongs to the "Virgen de la Candelaria" solidarity group and this is her fourth loan with MFP. During all this time she has worked very hard to continue with her objectives, and she promises to be punctual with her repayments as in her association she was taught to be responsible. Victoria will use this money to buy natural fertilisers to scatter over her alfalfa and artichoke crops.

Victoria tiene 54 años, está casada con Oscar, con quien tiene dos hijos, de los cuales, ahora sólo viven con uno de ellos. La casa donde viven es propia, la compró hace 13 años.
Desde niña comenzó a cuidar los sembríos de sus padres, junto a sus hermanos pasaban horas en el campo. Ya tiene 30 años de experiencia en la agricultura, siembra alfalfa, alcachofa y papa. El secreto de Victoria es vender sus productos en la ciudad de Lima, donde el precio es mucho mayor. También obtiene otro ingreso del alquiler de sus pastos a ganaderos para el alimento de sus animales, los mismos pastos le ayudan a ella también, para alimentar a sus animales. Tiene vacas, cuyes y ovejas, los cuales engorda para venderlos de manera ocasional.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Virgen de la Candelaria” y este es su cuarto préstamo con MFP. En todo este tiempo trabajó muy duro para seguir con sus objetivos, por lo que promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas, pues en su asociación le enseñaron a ser responsable.
Victoria invertirá este dinero en la compra de fertilizantes naturales para esparcir entre sus sembríos de alfalfa y alcachofa.
