Yolanda
Yolanda, 50, is married to Antonio and they have three children but only one of them still lives with them. She owns her house located in a rural zone.

Agriculture has been her main economic activity for the last 20 years. It made it possible for her to pay for her children’s higher education costs. They visit her constantly and she feels happy to have her grandchildren’s love; she pampers them very much.

Her main crops are flowers (gladioli), peas and corn that she cares for and fertilizes because she knows that the good sale of harvests depends on this. She usually sells in the city’s wholesale market but depending on their quality she might take them to the capital where she gets better prices. She mentions that planting peas and gladioli is very profitable and the good thing is that they are harvested in 4, 5 or six months. She will now start a pea crop because the rainy season is approaching and that will be very beneficial.

She belongs to the “Picaflores de Patay” (Patay Hummingbirds) communal bank and this is her 7th MFP loan. She hopes for support to continue towards her objectives. Yolanda will use this money to buy four bags of pea seeds (2000 soles) and will use the rest of the money to buy fertilizer.

La agricultura es su principal actividad económica desde hace 20 años, hizo posible que pagara los estudios superiores de sus hijos, los cuales la visitan constantemente y se siente feliz de tener el amor de sus nietos, a los que consiente mucho. Sus principales cultivos son: flores (gladiolos), arvejas y papas, los que cuida y abona; pues sabe que de eso depende la buena venta en cada cosecha. Normalmente los vende en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad, pero dependiendo de la calidad, los lleva a la capital del país donde le pagan mayor precio. “Sembrar arvejas y gladiolos es muy rentable, lo bueno es que se cosechan en 4, 5 o 6 meses”, menciona. Ahora iniciará una siembra de arvejas, pues se acercan los días de lluvias y serán muy beneficiosos.

Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Picaflores de Patay”, y este es su séptimo préstamo con MFP, donde espera el apoyo para continuar con sus objetivos.
Yolanda invertirá este dinero en la compra de cuatro sacos de semilla de arvejas (con 2000 soles), lo restante lo destinará en la compra de fertilizantes.
