A loan of $725 helped buy seeds for lettuce and would like to buy sacks of fertilizer.

Aurelia's story

Aurelia, 39 years old, is married to Guzmán, 38 years old. They have 3 young children together. They care and educate them in their home in the rural area of Taroka. They have been devoted to agriculture for 17 years. They affirm "the fields give us everything". It is for this that Aurelia hopes to continue working as she has done until now. Thanks to God, her harvests of peas, potatoes, gladiolo, corn and carrots give them lots of profit. At harvest time, her production is sold in the cities of Tarma and Lima and for this, she travels constantly. Thanks to the support of Guzmán, her family has more income and bought two cars with which they run public transport between Tarma and Palca. The distance provides a very profitable job. Going forward, they hope to purchase more cars and in this way, cover more communities. This is her third loan with MFP and is happy to work in her communal bank as she loves to share ideas and success stories with her communal bank. With the loan she is requesting, she can buy seeds for gladiolos and lettuce, so that in the coming months she will plant the crops and if the money covers it, also buy some sacks of fertilizer.
