Lourdes
Lourdes, who is 27 years old, is married to Elvis with whom she has two children aged nine and four years old. They live in their own house located in a rural annex. Lourdes is a working mother.

From the age of 19, she has been working to support the maintenance of her family. Since then, she is engaged in farming and ranching. She mainly grows potatoes, oatmeal, beans and maca. But sometimes growing brought her problems, even leading to the lost of two crops due to frosts. For this reason, she decided to start raising animals. Currently, she has guinea pigs, sheep, cows and bulls, which she fattens for a while and then sells in her city.

"I take the cattle to Chupaca (city located 250 km away), because the prices are better", she says. She makes this trip every 20 days, confirming the profitability of her business. This month she plans to buy two cows, which she will fatten and then sell. She is requesting your support to do it.

Meanwhile, she is devoted to farming and to take care of her small animals. This is the third time she receives a loan from MFP. She agrees to pay her monthly installments on time, like before. With the money, she will be able to buy two cows, which she will fatten for resale.

Lourdes de 27 años está casada con Elvis con quien tiene 2 hijos de 9 y 4 años. Ellos viven en una casa propia ubicada en un anexo rural. Lourdes es una madre trabajadora. Desde los 19 años viene laborando para apoyar en la mantención de su familia. Desde entonces se dedica a la agricultura y la ganadería. Principalmente cultiva papas, avena, habas y maca. Pero a veces la siembra le traía problemas, llegando incluso a perder 2 cultivos, producto de las heladas. Por ello decidió empezar con la crianza de animales. Actualmente cuenta con cuyes, ovejas, vacas y toros, los que engorda en un cierto tiempo y después negocia en su misma ciudad. “El ganado vacuno lo llevo hasta Chupaca (ciudad ubicada a 250 Km. de distancia), porque los precios son mejores”, comenta. Realiza este viaje cada 20 días, por ello confirma la rentabilidad de su negocio.
Este mes tiene pensado adquirir 2 vacas, las que engordará para luego venderlas. Solicita de su apoyo por eso. Mientras tanto se dedica a la agricultura y al cuidado de sus animales menores. Ésta es la tercera vez que ella recibe un crédito de MFP, por ello se compromete a pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales, como lo hizo anteriormente. Con el dinero podrá adquirir 2 vacas, a las que engordará para su posterior venta.
