Nerida's story

Nerida is 29 years old. She is a woman who has always worked very hard to have a better life. She lives in her own home with her husband Blas, 40 years old, and her beloved three children, who are the reason for all her hard work. The arduous work she does with her husband in the field has resulted in her crops being very well tended, and in her products being bought quickly on sale days. Her main source of income is selling potatoes, since these are of such high quality that she sells them in the restaurants of the capital city of Lima. What she likes the most about her job is harvesting her land, since she feels like her work is having rsults. She has been doing this for 9 years and the hardest thing is protecting her crops from the diseased that can affect them. In time, she wants to adquire new land to expand her crops. This will be the fourth loan that Nerida has had with MFP. She has been very punctual with her payments and she has never had any problems with her communal bank. There she is in charge of bringing the joyfulness that keeps the other members very happy. With the three thousand nuevos soles she has asked for, she will purchase potato and pea seed to plant this season.
