Nerida
Nérida, age 35, is married to Manuel, and they have two children. Karelyn is 16, and Arol is 9. This family lives in their own house in an agricultural area.

She has been farming for 15 years. “I plant peas, potatoes, and gladiolas (flowers),” she says. She adds that selling the gladiolas is more profitable. Each package sells for 70 soles. To make her sales she needs to take her products to the wholesale market in the city.

Nérida does not neglect her crops. Each time she plants a little more. This way she plans to acquire other parcels of land in other districts in order to produce vegetables. She will now work hard planting the peas and caring for her gladiola crops, which she is planning on harvesting in November.

This is her 8th loan with MFP. She pledges to be punctual with her payments. She belongs to the “Los Picaflores de Patay” [The Patay Hummingbirds] communal bank. She is grateful for the many years of trust given to her and the support of the educational talks.

With the money she is now requesting she will be able to buy pea seeds (with 1,000 soles). The rest will be to get fertilizers for her flowers and the recently planted peas.

Nérida tiene 35 años, está casada con Manuel, con quien tiene dos hijos: Karelyn de 16 y Arnol de 9 años. Esta familia vive en su casa propia en una localidad agrícola.
Hace 15 años que se dedica a la agricultura; “siembro arvejas, papas y gladiolos (flores)”, comenta, añadiendo que es más rentable la venta de los gladiolos, ya que cada paquete lo vende a 70 soles. Para la venta, le conviene llevar sus productos hacia el mercado mayorista de la ciudad. Nérida no descuida sus sembríos y cada vez siembra un poco más, de esta manera piensa adquirir otras parcelas en otros distritos para producir hortalizas. Ahora se esmerará en la siembra de arvejas y en el cuidado de sus sembríos de gladiolos, los que piensa cosechar en noviembre.

Este es su crédito número 8 con MFP, por eso se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de sus cuotas. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “los Picaflores de Patay”. Agradece mucho tantos años de confianza hacia su persona y el apoyo con las charlas educativas.
Con el dinero que ahora solicita podrá comprar semillas de arvejas (con 1000 soles). Lo restante será para adquirir fertilizantes para sus flores y las arvejas que recién sembrará.
