Victoria
Victoria, 57, is a cheerful woman. She lives in the company of her husband, León, with whom she has six children, all independent now. One of her daughters, her husband and grandson live with her in the house she inherited 20 years ago.

Her day centers on various activities. Her fields are a one-hour walk away. She grows quinoa, peas, lima beans, corn and other vegetables there. She cares for them with help from her husband who taught her everything he knows about agriculture. When she harvests vegetables she sells them in Lima, the nation’s capital, but she sells the other crops added to green grains she buys in the marked in Jauja twice a week. This is her main economic activity and where she earns the most income.

The rest of the days of the week she spends caring for her animals because she owns cows, guinea pigs, pigs and donkeys. She gets milk from the cows that she sells every day.

This is her tenth MFP loan. She has a good impression of group loans even though there have been occasional difficulties that have strengthened her confidence in her association. Today, she renews her commitment to continue being punctual with her installment payments.

She will use the money to buy sacks of green grains to sell as well as natural fertilizer for her crops and feed for her animals.

Victoria, de 57 años es una mujer alegre. Vive en compañía de su esposo León con quien tiene 6 hijos, todos ellos independientes. Ahora vive con una de sus hijas, su esposo y su nieto en la casa que heredaron hace 20 años. Su día se centra en diversas actividades, a una hora de caminata quedan sus terrenos agrícolas donde siembra quinua, alverja, habas, maíz y demás hortalizas. Las cuales cuida con la ayuda de su esposo quien le enseñó todo lo que sabe de la agricultura. Cuando cosecha las verduras, los vende a la capital del país Lima, pero las demás cosechas en conjunto con los granos verdes que compra los vende al mercado de la ciudad de Jauja, donde comercializa 2 veces por semana, siendo este su principal actividad económica y donde obtiene mayores ingresos. Los demás días de la semana los dedica a cuidar sus animales pues posee vacas, cuyes, cerdos y burros. De las vacas obtiene la leche que comercializa todos los días. Es el crédito número 10 con MFP, tiene un buen concepto del crédito grupal aunque en muchas ocasiones hayan existido dificultades que han fortalecido la confianza en su asociación, que hoy renueva su compromiso de seguir siendo puntual en sus cuotas.
Victoria, invertirá el dinero en la compra de sacos de granos verdes para la venta, además de fertilizantes naturales para sus sembríos y comida balanceada para sus animales.
