Celia
Celia, forty-two, lives with her husband, Eusebio, with whom she has three children that she loves and cares for in her own house, located in an agricultural district. Her work requires perseverance and dedication. For more than twenty years she's been in agriculture and it has provided her a lot of satisfaction. Her main crops are peas, potatoes, and corn, which she sells for a nice price at the city wholesale market, where she travels after every harvest. "We invest a lot of money in the crops, but as soon as we harvest them we recoup costs and make a profit," she says. Thanks to her work, Celia was able to buy the five plots of cultivable land she now has.

One of the advantages Celiea has is animals, like oxen, that she uses to till the land. A lot of times she'll lease her animals out to other farmers, bringing in around 90 soles per day.

Celia is prepared for the coming months of planting; the big planting season has come and she's going to plant potatoes and peas and not get left behind. She and her husband are excited because the bulk of their annual income depends on this time of year. Celia is seeking your support. This will be her twelfth loan with MFP, and she grateful for the support. She belongs to the "Lindo Amanecer de Cumutay" [Beautiful Cumutay Dawn] Communal Bank, whose members are punctual and collaborative.

With the loan of 3000 soles Celia will be able to buy bags of fertilizer, pea and potato seed, as well as pay for any laborers she might hire.
