Carmen's story

Carmen is 32 years old. She is a wise woman and lives with Luis, her husband of 10 years. They have 4 children, all minors, which they take care of in their own house which is located in the annex of Huayhua. As a countrywoman, she raises cattle and sheep. She has 7 cows which give her 7 litres of milk a day with which she makes cheese to sell to the marketers who are constantly at her door, as they know the quality of her cheese. She now has 10 years experience not only in livestock but also in agriculture, as she plants corn, potatoes, peas and wheat in her 6 plots of farmland, which she takes care of with love. "I like being in the countryside," she says happily. However, during a good harvest, when the soil bears good fruits, she takes her produce to the city of Huancayo, where they pay higher prices and if she has the capital she takes the opportunity to buy more cattle to fatten for subsequent sale. In this way, she always has income, as her motto is "invest". She belongs to the communal bank "San Miguel" and this is the 7th loan with MFP. She hopes to receive your support to achieve her goals. In addition, she promises to be punctual with her repayments as she is a responsible woman. Carmen, on receiving your support, will invest the money requested to buy a pedigree cow and several sheep.
