Ana
Ana is 29 years old. Ana is married and she has been with her husband for nearly 8 years. She has a 7 year old daughter. They inherited the house that they live in from her in-laws. Ana has been making a living taking care of her farm animals for the past 8 years. She has cows, sheep, and billy goats. Her husband cultivates a type of vegetable called a "chacra" and he also grows potatoes. During harvest Ana begins to prepare meals for her family at 5 o'clock a.m until 8 o'clock a.m and afterwards she gathers the potatoes and the vegetables and prepares them to get them ready to sell at the marketplace. Before she leaves to go to the market she ties up her cows and her billy goats to posts so that they will not escape and ruin her neighbors' cultivations. Ana is really happy with raising her animals and cultivating her plants, and now she wants to start selling firewood. She wants to take advantage of having a lot of trees around her home. With the firewood sales she wants to improve the quality of life for her family. Ana has received 5 consecutive loans through MFP and she has shown that she is punctual in making the payments. She has been really happy with the policies of the communal bank and she is in charge of taking notes during each of their meetings. With this loan she wants to buy fertilizers for her vegetables, and buy more baby sheep of a good breed. Her plan is to raise the animals to grow and get fat and then resale them at a better price so that she can earn more money.

Ana tiene 29 abriles, lleva conviviendo con su pareja cerca de 8 años, de los cuales tiene una hija de 7 años, viven en la casa heredada de sus suegros. Desde hace 8 años y todos los días se dedica pastar sus animales como: vacas, carneros y cabras, mientras que su esposo cultiva sus chacras, sembrando mayormente papas. En los días de cosecha Ana empieza a preparar el menú a las 5.00am hasta las 8.00am y en seguida acude a la chacra para recoger las papas, preparar la carga y finalmente comercializarla en el mercado. En esta época, a sus vacas las sujeta a una estaca y a los carneros los ata de las patas para evitar que se dispersen y puedan perjudicar cultivos ajenos. Ana está muy contenta de criar animales y cultivar sus plantas, ahora quiere incursionar en la venta de leña, por contar con terrenos de muchos árboles, a lo que piensa sacarle ventaja y captar más ingresos para mejorar su calidad de vida. La permanencia de Ana en MFP ha sido por 5 préstamos consecutivos, y en todo este tiempo a demostrado ser puntual en sus pagos, está muy contenta con las políticas del banco comunal y tiene el cargo secretaria donde en cada reunión se encarga tomar apuntes en el libro de actas. Con el dinero que ha solicitado comprará fertilizantes para su chacra, así como corderos pequeños de buena raza, con la finalidad de que crezcan, engorden y los pueda revender a mejor precio para ganar mucho más de lo invertido.
