Kety
Kety is 27 years old. She lives with her husband with whom she has three children aged 10, 5, and 2 years. This family lives in their own home located in an agricultural and livestock district. Kety is a diligent and hardworking mother.

She became a mother at an early age. Since then she decided to work in agriculture on land that her parents gave her. Now she says that she gets the most satisfaction from the livestock. “I have more than 50 rams, that were raised in the highlands, when they are grown I sell or butcher them,” she says. She makes good profits on the sales from the meat, skin, innards, and more that she sells in a make-do stand in the district marketplace.

Katy has big goals including expanding her crop fields and improving the breed of her animals. For now she is working raising more sheep, to continue her meat business. This is her fourth loan through MFP. She promises to make her monthly payments on time. In addition she affirms that working with her communal bank “Mirando un futuro mejor,” is united, collaborative, and is supportive of the other members.

She will invest the 500 soles in the purchase of 6 head of sheep to fatten for later sale.

Por ahora se dedicará a la crianza de más ovejas, para continuar con su negocio de carnes. Éste es su préstamo número 4 con MFP. Se compromete en pagar las cuotas mensuales con puntualidad. Por otra parte reconoce el trabajo de su banco comunal “Mirando un futuro mejor”, como solidario y cooperativo por la comprensión con los demás socios.
Invertirá los 500 soles en la compra de 6 cabezas de ganado ovino para engordarlos y posteriormente venderlos.
