Angelica
Angélica is 39 years old and lives with her husband, Luis, and their three children, whom she loves very much. They own their home, which they constructed with a lot of effort in a rural area in Peru. All that Angélica has she owes to hard work. She is a farmer, and along with Luis she directs the growing of potatoes, tubers, peas and lima beans, which they plant on their own farmlands that they were able to acquire together. Angélica has been farming for 13 years, and over that time she has faced setbacks like losing crops. However, there have been also comforting times with good profits. She hopes in the future to save enough money to get her own truck and in this way minimize the transportation costs of taking her goods to the wholesale market in the city, where she sells her products. Furthermore, she would like to help her business buying and selling animals. Rain is important for planting, so she will take advantage of this time to plant corn and peas. She belongs to the “Picaflores de Patay” community bank, and this is her seventh loan with Kiva partner MFP. She is a hardworking member of her group and very punctual with her payments. She plans to use the loan to purchase pea and corn seeds, as well as bags of organic fertilizers.

Angélica de 39 años, vive junto a su esposo Luis y sus 3 hijos a los que quiere mucho. Su casa es propia, que construyeron con esfuerzo, en una zona rural.
Todo lo que tiene se lo debe a su trabajo arduo. Ella es agricultora. Al lado de Luis, se dirige a sus sembríos de papa, olluco, arvejas y habas, los cuales siembra en sus propios terrenos agrícolas, que gracias al trabajo conjunto que realizan como socios y esposos lograron adquirir.
Son como 13 años los que lleva como agricultora. En todo este tiempo afrontó malos momentos como pérdidas de cosechas. Además vivió momentos reconfortantes obteniendo buenas ganancias. Desea más adelante ahorrar el dinero suficiente para poder adquirir un camión y, de esa manera minimizar los gastos de trasporte que realizan de la ciudad al mercado mayorista de la ciudad, donde lleva a comercializar su cosecha. Además de ayudarle en su negocio de compra y venta de animales.
Las lluvias son importantes en las siembras, por eso aprovechará estos días para sembrar maíz y arvejas.
Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Picaflores de Patay”, y éste es su crédito número 7 con MFP. En su grupo es una socia trabajadora y muy puntual en sus cuotas.
Destinará el dinero en la compra de semillas de arvejas y maíz. Así también comprará bolsas de fertilizantes orgánicos.
