Marina
Marina, age 56, is married to 61 year old Gabriel. They live together in their own house, which they built, with great effort, in a small rural community. Marina is a diligent and hard-working woman.

Thanks to her native city’s fertile land, she is able to successfully develop her business activity, farming. She now grows potatoes, ‘olluco’ [a type of Peruvian tuber], corn, and peas. These products have given her the income needed to support her family.

She sells everything that she harvests at the wholesale market in Tarma. That is where she gets the best prices for her products. She has been working in the fields for 40 years, and she says that it is going well for her. She says that the most difficult part is transporting the products to the wholesale market because means of transportation are scarce in her area.

In time she wishes to buy new land in order to increase her production. However, for now she will do her best with the pea and potato crops that she wants to plant this month. That is why she is requesting help to achieve this end.

This is her fourth loan with MFP. She pledges to make her monthly payments punctually. She belongs to the “Virgen de Fátima” communal bank, where the members are active participants. She plans to use the requested 3,000 soles to get bags of organic fertilizer and three bags of pea seeds.

Gracias a los suelos fértiles de su ciudad natal puede desenvolverse con éxito en su actividad: la agricultura. Ahora se dedica al cultivo de papa, olluco, maíz y arveja, productos que le han brindado los ingresos necesarios para mantener a su familia. Todo lo cosechado, lo vende en el mercado mayorista de Tarma, que es donde mejores precios obtiene por sus productos. Son como 40 años los que lleva en el campo, y comenta que le va bien y que lo más difícil es transportar sus productos hasta el mercado mayorista, ya que la movilidad es escasa por su zona.
