Angelica's story

Angelica, 37, is known for being happy. She lives together with her husband, Luis, and her 3 children whom she loves very much. They live in harmony in their own home in the village of Patay. She is very happy. Every morning from very early she goes to work with her husband Luis, managing her crops of potatoes, ulluco, peas, and broad beans. They plant them on their own land which she and her husband were able to acquire thanks to their hard work together as partners and spouses.

They have been farming for 11 years and what they like most is being able to spend most of their time together as a family. For the development and success of their business, in the future they want to save enough money to be able to buy a truck so that they can reduce the cost of transportation to the wholesale market in the city where they sell their harvest. It would also help with their business buying and selling animals, which consists of carrying bulls, cows, donkeys and rams to the cattle market in the city of Huancayo. There they sell each specimen for a good price.

She belongs to the village bank "Picaflores de Patay" and this is her 5th loan with MFP where she is a hardworking member and is very punctual in her payments. For this reason she hopes for all of your support in obtaining this small loan. Angelica will invest the requested loan in the purchase of bulls and cows.
