Vilma
Vilma is 30 years old and is a single mother. She has two children whom she loves and takes care of. She lives in her own house, located in a settlement in an agricultural district.

Vilma is a conscientious woman. Her main work is in agriculture. She has been working on her parents’ land since she was 17. Now that she has two children, she is in charge of two plots of land that she inherited from her parents.

She grows potatoes, peas, corn, and gladioli flowers, and mentions that these are the most profitable products due to the low investments costs and the high demand. “It is tiring work, especially during sowing and harvesting. That’s why I hire workers and pay them per day worked, ” she says.

This year, she mainly grew potatoes and peas, but in the future she wants to extend her crops to include corn and gladioli, and this is why she needs bags of organic fertilizer. This is her second loan with the MFP. She is happy to be working with a group of people that she considers trustworthy. Her communal bank is called “Las Estrellitas” [The Little Stars], and it is working well.

With the 700 soles she is requesting, she will be able to buy five bags of organic fertilizer.

Vilma de 30 años es una madre soltera. Tiene 2 hijos a quienes cuida con amor. Ella vive en una casa propia ubicada en un caserío de un distrito agrícola.
Vilma es una mujer esmerada. Su principal actividad es la agricultura. Desde los 17 años ya trabajaba en terrenos de sus padres. Ahora que tiene 2 hijos se hace cargo de 2 parcelas que sus padres le heredaron.
Ella cultiva papas, arvejas, maíz y flores de gladiolos, siendo estos productos los más rentables, por su baja inversión y por la demanda, según menciona.
“El trabajo es cansado, especialmente en las siembras y cosechas, por eso contrato personal y les pago por cada día”, dice.
Este año sus principales productos que cosechó fueron las papas y arvejas, pero está vez quiere extender sus cultivos de maíz y gladiolos, por eso requiere de su ayuda para adquirir bolsas de fertilizantes orgánicos.
