HUANCAYO, Peru / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $750 helped to build a room for her kitchen.


Eusebia's story

Eusebia, age 30, is a courageous woman. She lives with Rolando, her husband of eight years. They have four minor children that they are raising and educating in their own house. They live in the rural community of Huaytacorral. She has adapted her family to many limitations. She lives in a small house where she shares her bedroom with the kitchen, which is in the same place.

She hopes to save in order to build the rest of her house with lots of rooms where each one of them can have their place. She knows that she will succeed with her main financial activity, agriculture. Her crops are potatoes and maca (a peruvian root grown for its nutritional and medicinal value). She takes care of her crops on four hectares of productive land, which she obtained through much effort. She had to work carefully during hours and even days in order to get a good harvest.

However, that is not the only thing she does. She also raises animals like cows, pigs, sheep, and packhorses. She sells them for a good price after fattening them.

This is her sixth loan with MFP. She hopes to have your collaboration in order to be able to solidify her plans. She pledges to make her payments. Also, she is pleased to be part of her communal bank because all of the members are responsible and very supportive people. Upon receiving your support she will use the requested money to build a room to set up her kitchen.
