Yolanda
Yolanda is 50 years old and lives with her husband, Antonio. They have three children, but only one lives with them. Their home is located in a rural district in Peru. With a lot of enthusiasm, Yolanda mentions that her main source of income for the past 20 years has been farming, and through her work she was able to pay for the higher education of her children, who visit her often. She is happy to have the love of her grandchildren, whom she admittedly spoils a lot. Her main crops are gladiolus flowers, peas and potatoes, and she vigorously cares for them because she depends on good sales every harvest. She sells the products in the wholesale market in the city of Tarma, and, depending on the quality, she takes them to Lima, the capital, where they pay better prices. "Planting peas and gladiolus is very lucrative. The good thing is that they are harvested in four to six months," Yolanda says. The plantings never stop in her area, so she needs your help to acquire more seeds and bags of fertilizers. Yolanda belongs to "Picaflores de Patay" community bank, and this is her eighth loan with Kiva partner MFP. She hopes with all of your support she can continue with her objectives. She plans to purchase five bags of pea seeds and two of gladiolus seeds, and the rest will go toward bags of fertilizers.

Yolanda tiene 50 años, que vive junto a su esposo Antonio. Tiene 3 hijos, pero por ahora sólo vive con 1 de ellos. Su casa se ubica en un distrito rural. Con mucho entusiasmo, Yolanda menciona que su principal actividad económica desde hace 20 años es la agricultura, ya que con ella, hizo posible los pagos de los estudios superiores de sus hijos, los cuales le visitan constantemente y se siente feliz de tener el amor de sus nietos, a los que consiente mucho.
Sus principales cultivos, son de flor de gladiolo, arvejas y papas, los que tenazmente cuida y abona; pues sabe que de eso depende la buena venta en cada cosecha, ya que vende en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad de Tarma, y dependiendo de la calidad, los lleva a la capital del país, donde le pagan mayor precio.
