Clorinda
Clorinda, 46, lives with Alfonso with whom she has three children who are 14, 9 and 5 years of age. They all live in a house of their own that they built with much effort in an agricultural annex. Clorinda is a tender mother and a responsible wife. She’s worked in agriculture for 20 years which is why she trusts in her development as a woman of the fields. Her main crops are peas, lima beans, barley, corn and gladiola flowers. “My zone has rich soil; that’s why everything grows,” she says.

With support from her spouse they are able to do all the work needed in the field but sometimes it’s not enough and they have to hire more staff.

They sell almost all of their crops in the Tarma wholesale market. “The peas, lima beans and corn sell there almost instantly but I take the gladiola flowers to a different street market,” she mentions about her work.

Clorinda expects to plant peas and lima beans again taking advantage of the rain that starts to fall this month which is why she needs your support. This is her 11th MFP loan and she feels grateful to receive economic support and educational chats because they push her to be more responsible. She’s a member of the “Santa Cruz de Patay” communal bank, a solid group she participates in constantly. She will use the 3000 soles she’s requesting to buy three bags of pea seeds and one of lima bean seeds; she will use the remaining 1000 soles to buy organic manure and barnyard guano.

Clorinda de 46 años, convive con Alfonso con quien tiene 3 hijos de 14, 9 y 5 años. Todos ellos viven en una casa propia que construyeron con esfuerzo, en un anexo agrícola. Clorinda es una madre tierna y una esposa responsable. Se dedica a la agricultura desde los 20 años. Por eso confía en su desempeño como mujer de campo. Sus principales cultivos constan arvejas, habas, cebada, maíz y flores de gladiolos. “En mi zona hay buenos terrenos, por eso crece de todo”, dice.
Con el apoyo de su pareja, pueden cubrir todo el trabajo que requiere el campo; pero muchas veces no es suficiente, por eso contratan más personal.
Casi toda su producción la negocian en el mercado mayorista de Tarma. “Las arvejas, habas y maíz, se venden ahí y casi al instante, pero las flores de gladiolos las llevo para otra feria”, menciona sobre su trabajo.
Clorinda espera volver a sembrar arvejas y habas, aprovechando las lluvias que empiezan a caer en este mes, por ello requiere de su apoyo. Éste es su crédito número 11 con MFP. Se siente agradecida de recibir el apoyo económico y las charlas educativas, porque la impulsaron a ser más responsable. Pertenece al banco comunal “Santa Cruz de Patay”, un grupo sólido donde ella participa constantemente.
Con los 3000 soles que solicita piensa adquirir 3 bolsas de semillas de arvejas y 1 de habas. Los 1000 soles restantes los invertirá en la compra de abonos orgánicos y guano de corral.
