Delia's story

37-year-old Delia is married to 37-year-old Renol. The couple have four children. They live together in their own home which is located in Pichari Baja district. Delia is a young mother who farms together with her much-loved husband. They always coordinate their work so that they carry out their jobs in an ordered and organized manner. They learned this business from their parents and so they always use good farming practices to obtain better production. Delia has always longed to have a plot of land near her home so that she can make progress in her work as, in the past, she had a plot which was a long way away and she couldn't carry out her work in a timely manner which meant that her land didn't produce as well as it should have. Delia sold that plot in order to buy a new one. She is happy with her new plot of land which is producing constantly thanks to the good care that she takes of it. In the future, she plans to buy a further plot of farmland so that she can continue expanding her crops.

This is Delia's second loan from MFP and she pledges, once again, to make her repayments on time. Delia is happy to be a member of her community bank because all of the group's members are good people and they work as a team. Delia will use her 2,000 soles to prune her farmland. In order to achieve this, she will hire laborers.
