Olga
Olga is 45 years old and a cheerful woman. She has three children but only lives with one, Lisbeth. She lives in hre own house located in Paccha. She mainly grows potatoes and corn, as well as alfalfa to feed her animals. She has cows and sheep that she brings to pasture in the countryside with her daughter when the alfalfa production is scarce. Alfalfa production is generally not enough during the summer time and what she is able to harvest she sells in the main market of her town. She also sells her animals, including sheep, cows and bulls, when the opportunity presents itself. Her animals typically are kept near her home.

She considers it good to have two types of activities running parallel to maintain income stability and progressively grow. Since she is such a hard worker, she also works packaging chicken for a company, doing so two to three times a week, as she also has to care for her animals and harvest. She has now traced concrete goals to continue growing and is certain she will achieve them.

She belongs to the solidarity group "Productoras Agrícolas Las Emprendedoras" and this is her fourth loan with MFP. She is thankful for the financial support that has been brought to her in a constant manner. She now has the means to improve her business. She promises to be punctual with her loans since the organization has already taught her to be responsible. Olga will invest the money requested to buy medicines for her animals and also to buy alfalfa to feed her animals if there is enough money left over.

Cultiva principalmente la papa, el maíz y también alfalfa para dar de alimentar a sus animales, tiene vacas, terneras y ovejas que con la ayuda de su hija llevan a pastear al campo cuando es escaso la producción de alfalfa que generalmente en época de verano no se produce en cantidades suficientes y lo que llega a cosechar vende al mercado provincial de su localidad. También vende de acuerdo a la ocasión sus animales como ovejas, vacas y toros; cuando se le presenta una oportunidad de venta, que por lo general acuden a su casa, considera que es bueno trabajar en estas dos actividades paralelas para mantener la estabilidad de los ingresos y crecer progresivamente. Pero como es muy trabajadora, también trabaja embolsando carne de pollo en una empresa, cuenta que lo hace de 2 a 3 veces a la semana, pues tiene que cuidar de sus animales y producción.
