Donata's story

Donata is 52 years old and a very hard-working woman. She lives with Esequiel, her husband for 32 years. They have eight children, of whom six live with them in their house located in the area of Cullpa Alta. Thanks to their collaboration, she and her husband have achieved everything that they now have, including the house and economic stability.

She works in agriculture, planting corn, broad beans and potatoes in their own fields and rented ones. Every morning she takes care of her crops and counts on soon harvesting her "yungay" breed of potatoes. She hopes for good profits, because she is known among wholesalers, who sometimes come to her fields to purchase her crops.

Now she wants to improve her plantings and make better profits in order to buy more agricultural land. She belongs to the solidarity group "Manos Fuertes" (Strong Hands) and this is her fourth loan with MFP, where she feels well supported, having received help in improving her business. Because of this, she promises to be punctual in her payments. In addition, she likes working in her association because they are responsible and supportive people.

If Donata receives her loan, she will invest it in the payment of a person to plow land to begin the sowing season.
