Zulema's story

Zulema is 26 years old and has lived with Héctor for four years. They have a daughter named Sharmely who they take care of in their own home in the village of Tapo. Zulema earns her living through farming. She has her own land located outside of the community. Her main crops consist of potatoes, beans, peas, and corn. She has three years of experience farming and what she enjoys most about her work is passing on the knowledge she gained from her parents. Zulema also says that she partners with another woman with whom she shares the costs of seeds, compost, and fertilizers used for their crops. However, what gives her the most enjoyment is taking care of domesticated animals such as guinea pigs. She sells the animals at a good price at the standard market in the city of Tarma, the place where she receives her orders.

Zulema is a member of the Santa Rosa Communal Bank. This is her third loan with MFP, the organization that has provided her with opportunities to make progress. She will invest the loan she requested in the purchase of two medium-sized bulls that she will care for and fatten so that she can sell them later at a better price.
