Flora
Flora is 32-years-old and her spouse is Elvis; they have two children, Pamela, 12 and Geyson, 10. They live in their own house that they built with much effort in an agricultural zone.

Her main activity is agriculture; she grows peas and potatoes. She states that it’s advantageous to plant peas because their price is high and they are harvested two or three times a year. She mentions that she usually plants three sacks of seeds and each bag yields thirty sacks of peas. Elvis works in a mine contributing additional family income but when his work for the mine is done he also works farming the land. Flora is happy with her work in the fields because she enjoys her work despite how exhausting and risky it can be. Her advantage is that her products are sold at wholesale immediately which is why she does not hesitate to continue with her work. One of her goals is to acquire more land to expand her crops and to plant flowers (gladioli) which are in high demand.

This is her 8th MFP loan and she commits to be punctual with her installment payments. She belongs to the “Los Picaflroes de Patay” (Patay Hummingbirds) communal bank. Flora will use the money from this loan to buy pea and gladiola seeds as well as sacks of fertilizer.
