Alida
Alida is 25 years old. Her husband is Percy, with whom she has three children: María Fernanda is five, Edith is four, and Yamile is one year old. This family lives in their own house located in a rural community.

Alida has worked in agriculture for more than five years, since she had her first child. Together with her husband, she plants peas, corn, potatoes, and flowers. The peas bring in a good income because their price is stable, but the flowers (gladiolus) are more profitable because of their low investment costs and quick harvest time. "I plant twice a year and try to have the harvests coincide with the months when the prices are up," she explains. She sells the potatoes, corn, and peas in the city wholesale market. Now she will start a new crop of peas, for which she needs support.

This is her eighth loan through MFP, so she promises to be punctual with her monthly loan payments. She belongs to the communal bank "Los Picaflores de Patay" ["The Hummingbirds of Patay"], and she feels pleased to have responsible members who are reliable with their payments.

Alida will invest the money from her loan in the purchase of three sacks of pea seeds and bags of fertilizer.

Alida tiene 25 años, su pareja es Percy, con quien tiene tres hijos: María Fernanda de 5, Edith de 4 y Yamile de un año. Esta familia vive en su casa propia ubicada en una localidad rural.
Ella se dedica a la agricultura desde hace más de 5 años, desde que tuvo a su primer hijo. Junto a su esposo, siembra arvejas, maíz, papas y flores. Las arvejas le brindan buenos ingresos porque sus precios son estables, pero las flores (gladiolos) son más rentables por su poca inversión y rápida cosecha; “siembro dos veces al año y trato que las cosechas coincidan con los meses donde el precio sube”, comenta. La papa, maíz y arvejas las vende en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad. Ahora iniciará una nueva siembra de arvejas, para lo cual requiere de apoyo.
Este es su préstamo número 8 que obtiene de MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Los Picaflores de Patay”, y se siente a gusto de tener socios responsables y cumplidos en sus pagos.
Alida invertirá el dinero de su crédito en la compra de tres sacos de semillas de arvejas y bolsas de fertilizantes.
