Norma
Norma is 37 years old and is married to Clemente, with whom she has four children who are 19, 16, 10 and 8 years old. They live in their own house attached to a ranch. Norma is a hardworking and persevering woman. From the age of 18 she worked in the fields her parents gave her. Clemente also has his own land which he inherited. Norma grows Yungay and Jilguero potatoes, and sells her crop in the largest market in Tarma. She says that her potatoes always sell well and she has the best prices.

Work in the fields isn't easy, especially with children of school age, who she has to look after before she can attend to her fields. Norma wants to sow more potatoes this month, as the planting season is getting closer. This is why she needs your support. This is her fourth loan with MFP. She gives her word to be punctual with her monthly payments. She is a member of the communal bank 'Mirando un futuro mejor' ('Looking to a better future'), and she is pleased that the system lets her work for herself. Norma will invest the money in buying bags of fertiliser and guano from poultry so she can start sowing, as she already has the seeds.

Norma tiene 37 años de edad, está casada con Clemente, con quien tiene 4 hijos de 19, 16, 10 y 8 años. Ellos viven en una casa propia ubicada en un anexo agrícola y ganadero. Norma es una mujer constante y trabajadora. Desde los 18 años viene laborando en los campos de cultivos que sus padres le otorgaron. Por su parte Clemente también posee terrenos por su herencia.
Ella se dedica a la agricultura, con la siembra de papas de las variedades: “Yungay” y “Jilguero”. Producción que vende satisfactoriamente en el mercado mayorista de Tarma. “Estas papas se venden mejor, sus precios son mejores y siempre se mantienen”, menciona.
El trabajo en el campo no es sencillo, y más aún cuando tiene hijos en edad escolar, a quienes atiende para luego dedicarse a sus sembríos.
Norma desea sembrar más papas en este mes, ya que la temporada de siembras se acerca. Por eso requiere de su apoyo. Éste es su crédito número 4 con MFP. Da su palabra de ser puntual en el pago de las mensualidades. Pertenece al banco comunal “Mirando un futuro mejor”, y se siente a gusto con el sistema de trabajo de su cuenta interna.
Norma invertirá el dinero en la compra de bolsas de fertilizantes y guano de corral, para iniciar una siembra, porque ya cuenta con las semillas.
