Bacilia
Bacilia is 38 years old with three children--two are in primary school and the eldest is studying to get into university. In her town, everyone works in agriculture. She wanted to sell clothing, but her circumstances have changed, now that she has children and a husband who's a farmer. He plants potatoes and other produce, but she didn't want to plant potatoes because it requires such a large investment and the market price is not satisfactory. But this season, at least, the price of fertilizers has fallen from 215 to 185 soles, and she hopes the price will hold steady so she can recoup her investment. The family has faced difficulties planting their fields because they didn't have enough money to fertilize both of them, so one is not as productive as they'd hoped. This is Bacilia's seventh loan from Microfinanzas Prisma, and she tells us with sincerity that she has only delayed in making one payment, but after various loans the microfinance institution has regained its confidence in her, and she has not let them down. Now she will buy fertilizer that will enable her to fertilize the potato field, with the hope that May will bring a satisfactory harvest.

Bacilia tiene 38 años, es casada, tiene 3 hijos que estudian, dos de ellos el nivel primario y el mayor se está estudiando para postular a la universidad. En su pueblo, todos sin excepción se dedican a la agricultura, a ella le gustaba dedicarse a la venta de ropa, pero su realidad cambió, ahora que tiene hijos y su esposo es agricultor, él siembra papa y demás productos, a ella no le gustaba sembrar papa porque se requería de mucha inversión y el precio en el mercado no era gratificante. Pero nos dice que en esta temporada, al menos, ha bajado el precio de los fertilizantes de 215 a 185 soles, y espera que se mantengan a ese precio, para que recompense su inversión. Esta familia tiene dificultad en la siembra de sus chacras por falta de dinero, ya que no pudieron abonar su otra chacra y no va a producir como se esperaba. Es su 7mo préstamo con Microfinanzas Prisma, nos comenta con sinceridad que sólo en una oportunidad se retrazó con un pago, pero generalmente, luego de varios prestamos, han puesto la confianza en ella, y no ha defraudado a su IMF. Ahora comprará fertilizantes para que pueda abonar sus chacras de papa, con la ilusión de que en la campaña de mayo puedan cosechar satisfactoriamente.
