Dedicación
Dedicación is a 47 year-old widow. She has 5 children, but she only lives with her youngest child who is 21 years-old. She lives in her own home, which she and her husband built side-by- side, years ago. The house is located in the rural annex.

Dedicación has a sweet smile and an exemplary work ethic. She makes a living as a farmer using land that is close to her home, as well as her own land. She has crops of distinct varieties of potatoes, specifically varieties that are colored and starchy. She also has crops of ullucos, an Andean tuber that is similar to a potato.

"With my farming business I have been able to save a lot of money, which is why I also started another business selling livestock." mentioned Dedicación.

She believes that farming is unpredictable, but she likes the pace of work. When she harvests her crops, she sells the produce in her own district, in the city of Tarma.

The sale of ullucos is profitable, which is why this month she is going to plant a new crop of this tuber. This is what she needs help with. This is her 15th loan which she has taken out through MFP. She is thankful for the opportunity to develop her business. She promises to make her loan payments on time. She is happy with and supported by the other communal bank group members; her group is called "Mirando un Futuro Mejor" (Looking for a Better Future)

Dedicación will use the loan to buy ulluco seeds and bags of organic fertilizer.

Dedicación de 47 años, es viuda. Tiene 5 hijas, pero sólo vive con la menor de 21 años, en una casa propia que construyó al lado de su esposo, años atrás y se ubica en un anexo rural.
Dedicación tiene una sonrisa dulce pero una actitud para el trabajo ejemplar. Se desempeña como agricultora en terrenos de cultivos de su localidad y propios, donde produce distintas variedades de papas, especialmente, papas de color y harinosas. Así también cultiva ollucos (tubérculos andinos).
“Con la agricultura he logrado ahorrar bastante, por eso también empecé con otro negocio, con la venta de ganado”, menciona
Considera que la agricultura es impredecible, pero le agrada el ritmo de trabajo.
En cuanto a su producción, Dedicación vende sus cosechas en su propio distrito y en la ciudad de Tarma.
La venta de ollucos es rentable, por ello éste mes iniciará una siembra de éste tubérculo; requiere de su apoyo para ello. Éste es su crédito número 15 con MFP, por ello agradece la oportunidad de desarrollo. Se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. A su vez menciona sentirse contenta y respaldada por los integrantes de su banco comunal “Mirando un futuro mejor”.
Dedicación destinará el dinero en la compra de semillas de ollucos y bolsas de fertilizantes orgánicos.
