Edubeges is 35 years old. She is a very loving mother of 4 children and lives happily married in her own home. After her morning household chores, she goes at 8 a.m. to her small citrus farm, where she grows oranges, mandarins and limes. She keeps her orchard painstakingly clean, and above all fumigated, so that her fruit will not be damaged by insects and can be sold at a good price. Buyers come directly to her orchard, and she sells them a hundred pieces of fruit for 3 or 4 Peruvian soles. However, in the months of January and February, fruit is in great demand in the city of Lima, so she can take advantage of this situation and sell her products at up to 10 soles per hundred. For this reason, she has recently fertilized her trees to prepare for a harvest in the [Southern] summer season, which will bring higher profits and help her cover her family's needs. In addition, while she is waiting for the harvest, she and her husband work as laborers on other farms, so that their children do not suffer from economic hardships.

This is Edubeges' first loan with MFP, and she is prepared to make all of her payments on schedule, since she does not want to cause problems for the other members who have guaranteed them. She will invest the funds she is requesting to purchase chemical fertilizers for her harvest in the month of January.

Edubeges tiene 35 años, es una madre muy cariñosa de 4 hijos, vive felizmente casada en su casa propia. Después de sus labores en el hogar acude a las 8 de la mañana a sus chacras de cítricos (naranjas, mandarinas y limones), las cuales se esmera en tenerlas limpias y sobre todo fumigadas para evitar que los mosquitos afecten sus frutos y sean cotizados a un buen precio. En su caso los compradores van hasta su chacra y ella les vende el ciento de fruta a 3 ó 4 soles. Pero en los meses de enero a febrero son muy demandadas en la ciudad de Lima, por lo que aprovecha en venderlas hasta 10 soles el ciento. Por tal motivo acaba de abonar sus plantas para cosechar en la temporada de verano para reunir mayores ganancias que solventen sus necesidades. Pero mientras espera su cosecha trabaja como operaria junto a su esposo en otras chacras, de ese modo sus hijos no pasan carencias económicas.
Este es su primer préstamo con MFP y ya está predispuesta para pagar todas sus cuotas de acuerdo a su cronograma, pues no quiere hacer quedar mal a sus compañeros que la garantizaron. El dinero que ahora solicita lo invertirá en la compra de fertilizantes químicos para sus cosechas del mes de enero.
