Antonia
Antonia is 49 years old. She is a hardworking woman who lives with her husband of 16 years, Moisés. They have 6 children together, 3 of whom still live with them in their own home.

She feels blessed that her husband supports her and that he helps her whenever he is able. They both work in agriculture. While her husband works as a laborer, she cares for their 8 cows and 3 bulls. She also milks the cows and sells the milk to the residents of their village. In addition to the balanced feed and vitamins that she feeds her animals to keep them healthy and to aid in good milk production, she secretly plants alfalfa to feed them. She also plants corn and potatoes on land that she rents. When it is time to harvest her crops, she sells them to wholesale buyers who request her corn in particular. She wants to buy her own piece of land so she can be independent. She belongs to a supportive group called “Barrio Oriental” and this is their 18th loan with MFP. She is grateful for all the support she has received to help her reach her goals. She is committed to making her payments. She is also happy to be a part of this group and has known them for many years.

Antonia will use her loan to buy organic fertilizer to spread on her crops as well as balanced feed for her animals.

Antonia, de 49 años es una mujer trabajadora. Vive en compañía de Moisés, su esposo desde hace 16 años. Ambos tienen 6 hijos de los cuales solo vive con 3 de ellos en su casa propia.
Ella se siente dichosa de tener el apoyo de su esposo, quien le ayuda cada vez que pueda. Pues la actividad de ambos es la agricultura, mientras su esposo trabaja como peón, ella se dedica a l cuidado de sus 8 vacas y 3 toros de las cuales extrae la leche que producen para venderlos a los pobladores de su localidad. Su secreto es sembrar por ella misma alfalfa y de esa manera alimenta a su animales, pero siempre les ofrece comida balanceada y vitaminas para mantenerlos fuertes y que produzcan buena leche. Paralelo a este trabajo siembra maíz, papa; en terrenos alquilados, ya cuando es tiempo de la cosecha los comercializa a los compradores mayoristas que buscan el maíz que solo ella sabe producir. Quiere comprar sus propios terrenos y así depender de ella misma. Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “barrio oriental” y este es el crédito número 18 con MFP, por tanto agradece su apoyo, con el cual logrará cumplir con sus objetivos. Por otro lado promete cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas. Además le agrada ser parte de su asociación, pues lleva muchos años de conocerlos.
Antonia; invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de abono orgánico para esparcir en sus cultivos y si el dinero le alcanza comprará también comida balanceada para sus animales.
