One of the group members is Josefa. She is 48 years old and is married with 6 children. She makes a living as a farmer. She has land where she plants crops of potatoes, fava beans and peas. She sells her products in different markets in the district of Anta. She works from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. It is as a result of this work that she is able to help her children get ahead. Her dream is to expand and improve her farming land. She has requested a loan to buy seeds and fertilizers for her crops.
