Nancy
28-year-old Nancy is a hard-working woman who lives together with her husband, Nilo. The couple have three children who they care for in a house that they bought three years ago.

Eight years ago, Nancy and her husband started putting their time and efforts into farming, an activity Nancy has been working in since she was a girl. Her main crops are potatoes, olluco (a native tuber) and peas. She puts a lot of care into her work as she sells her harvests in the city of Lima where buyers are very demanding as regards the quality of the food they buy. Nancy's lands are located in the high part of the village which means that she has to walk for hours in order to reach them. She hopes to be able to put together the money she needs to buy her own farmland. She currently has some land of her own but, as she has to grow her crops in large quantities, she also rents additional land. "I no longer want to invest my money to benefit other people and, for this reason, I will buy some land of my own", she says. This is Nancy's fourth loan from MFP and she is grateful for the support they have given her because it means she is able to continue investing in the progress of her business. She pledges to make her loan repayments on time.

Nancy will invest her money in buying pea seeds and also natural fertilizers which she will spread over her crops.

Nancy, de 28 años es una mujer trabajadora. Vive en compañía de su esposo Nilo, con quien tiene 3 hijos a los que cuida en la casa que compró hace 3 años.

Junto a su esposo, desde hace 8 años comenzó a dedicar su tiempo y esfuerzo en la agricultura, actividad que desarrollaron desde niña. Sus principales sembríos constan de papa, olluco y alverja, los cuales cuida con mucho esmero, pues la cosecha lo comercializa en la ciudad de Lima, donde los compradores son muy exigentes con la calidad de los alimentos al momento de la compra. Sus terrenos se ubican en la zona alta del pueblo, por lo que tiene que caminar horas para poder llegar. Ahora espera juntar el dinero necesario para poder comprar sus propios terrenos agrícolas, pues cuentan con algunos propios, pero como tienen que sembrar en cantidad también alquilan otros, “ya no quiero invertir el dinero para beneficio de terceras personas, por eso compraré unos propios”, comenta. Este es el cuarto crédito con MFP, por lo que agradece el apoyo que le brindaron, pues podrá seguir invirtiendo en el progreso de su negocio. Además promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas.
Nancy, invertirá el dinero en la compra de semilla de alverja y fertilizantes naturales para esparcir en su próxima siembra.
