They run an agriculture businesses and grow a variety of vegetables like peas, carrots and lima beans in their fertile fields. Every day she dedicates the majority of her time to carefully tending their crops. Parallel to her farming, she works preparing bread and pastry in a bakery that has paid for her services for the last 9 years. She is always looking for ways to pay her debts. For example, if she had the means she would also raise pigs and sell their meat. All of her activities are profitable and she likes doing them since she greatly wants to move forward and provide the best for her young daughter.

As a hard-working woman she has plans for the future. For instance she wants to plant more and increase her production and her earnings. This is the fifth time she has had a loan with MFP and it is certain that she is responsible and every payment is punctual. Also, its clear that she is very satisfied with her village bank since everyone is very organized and committed. Since she really wants to move forward, she will invest the money from this loan in pea and carrot seeds and will pay the lease on her land.
