Nelly's story

Nelly is 45 years years old. She is a very simple and hard-working woman. She lives in her own house with her husband Pedro, who is 50 years old, and their 3 children to whom she wishes to give a better life. Every day, very early in the morning, Nelly leaves to go to work in the fields. For her, there are no rest days as she has to continually work her farm in order for it to be productive. Her main crops are potatoes, spinach and peas which she sells wholesale in the city of Tarma. She has been doing this work for 30 years and she still enjoys working in the fields and caring for her crops, however, she has to be vigilant so that the insects don't destroy her crops. In the future, she wants to buy more land to increase her production.

This is her seventh loan with MFP. She has been very punctual with her payments and hopes to do the same with this loan. In her communal bank she is very well-liked by her fellow members since she is very cheerful. With the two thousand nuevos soles (Peruvian currency) that she is requesting she will buy more fertilizer for her crops.
