Rosenda
Rosenda is 30 years old. Her partner is Julián, with whom she has three children aged 4, 7 and 11. The family lives in their own home in a heavily agricultural area.

She has been a farmer since she was a teenager, and she used to support her parents in their work in the fields. Upon forming her own family, she also decided to continue to work in agriculture, since she enjoys caring for her crops. The local soil is excellent for growing distinct varieties of potato. Thus, every season she invests in seed potatoes and fertilizers, and she pays laborers to help work the fields. She knows that she will obtain satisfactory results each year. She sells her crops in the same area, even though she thinks that it is more profitable to sell in the city due to the larger number of buyers there. Her plan is to plant more potatoes this season, since the spring is approaching.

This is her 11th loan with MFP. She gives her word that she will be punctual in making her monthly repayments. Her communal bank is called “Trabajemos Unidos” ("United We Work"), and it is one of the oldest and most solid groups in the area.

She will use the loan proceeds to buy 10 sacks of seed potatoes. The remainder will be used to by fertilizers and manure.

Rosenda tiene 30 años, su pareja es Julián, con quien tiene tres hijos de 11, 7 y 4 años. Esta familia habita en una casa propia en un distrito netamente agrícola.
Ella se dedica a la agricultura desde adolescente, ya que apoyaba a sus padres en las faenas del campo. Al formar su familia también decidió dedicarse a lo mismo, pues le agrada el cuidado de sus cultivos. Los suelos de su localidad son excelentes para la producción de distintas variedades de papa, por eso, en cada temporada invierte en semillas, fertilizantes y mano de obra, ya que sabe que los resultados serán satisfactorios. Realiza las ventas en su misma localidad, aunque considera que es más rentable en la ciudad, por la mayor cantidad de compradores que llegan. Sus planes son de sembrar más papa en esta temporada, ya que se acerca la primavera.

Este es su crédito número 11 con MFP, por esa razón da su palabra de ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Su banco comunal se llama “Trabajemos Unidos” y es uno de los grupos más antiguos y ejemplares de la zona.
El dinero de este préstamo lo invertirá en la compra de 10 sacos de semillas de papa, lo que resta lo empleará en la compra de fertilizantes y guano de corral.
