Merlinia
Merlinia is a 21-year-old hardworking young woman. She lives with her parents in a rural district. She is charismatic and earnest. She supports her parents by working in the fields. Two years ago, she inherited a plot of land where she grows potatoes, lima beans, peas and corn. Once she started, she realized that a product is more lucrative when a larger quantity is harvested, so this year she grew potatoes, which she sold with success. This time she wants to plant corn and flowers because the climate and the month is right for good products and profits. Meanwhile, she also makes a living caring for livestock. For example, she sells milk and cheeses that she makes. Merlinia is constant in her activities and is requesting a loan to help her acquire more fertilizer to start planting corn and flowers. This is her second loan with Kiva partner MFP. She is grateful for the confidence in her once again and has no doubts that she will make her payments responsibly. She enjoys working with her "Las Estrellitas" community bank. With the loan, she will be able to purchase sacks of organic fertilizer to begin her plantings.

Merlinia de 21 años es una joven trabajadora. Vive en la casa de sus padres ubicada en un distrito rural.
Merlinia es carismática y empeñosa. Se encarga de apoyar a sus padres en el trabajo del campo.
Hace 2 años le heredaron una parcela de terrenos, ahí siembra papas, habas, arvejas y maíz. Así empezó pero se dio cuenta que sembrar un producto es más rentable por la cantidad de la cosecha, por eso este año cultivó papas, las que vendió con éxito.
Esta vez quiere sembrar maíz y flores de gladiolos porque el clima y el mes son propicios para conseguir buenos frutos y ganancias.
Mientras tanto se dedica al cuidado de sus animales, de los que también obtiene ingresos; como por ejemplo de la venta de leche y quesos que elabora. Merlinia es constante en sus actividades.
Esta vez requiere de su ayuda para adquirir más abono para iniciar una siembra de maíz y flores de gladiolos. Éste es su crédito número 2 con MFP. Esta agradecida por la confianza una vez más y no duda en pagar las cuotas con responsabilidad. Le agrada l trabajo con su banco comunal “Las Estrellitas”.
Con los 800 soles podrá adquirir bolsas de abono orgánico para iniciar nuevas siembras de maíz y flores de gladiolos.
