Adelia's story

Adelia is 43 years old, and a woman with ambition. She has lived with Cancio (47 years old) for 20 years, and they have 6 children. They live with 5 of them in their own home located in Huaricolca. Her goal is for her children to have a profession and be well set up for life. For this reason she has been enthusiastic in her work, planting potatoes, peas, and oats. Because of the way she constantly cares for her crops, this generates solid earnings. Because there is a water shortage at times, she cannot plant, and she turns to selling the milk produced by her two "mantona" cows, thereby assuring her family’s financial wellbeing. Good mother that she is, she always sees that her children are properly fed. She also raises small animals, such as guinea pigs, sheep, which she fattens for their meat, for their feeding, but if they turn out well, she plans to market them. This is her first loan with MFP, and confident in her communal bank’s reliability, she predicts that she will be very successful. With the loan provided, she will buy fertilizer for her potato fields, where she will begin sowing very soon.
