Rosa's story

Rosa is 36 years old, she is married to Olo, with whom she has two young children. She and her family live in a house of their own located in an agricultural area. Rosa is an admirable woman, because in spite of the problem she has in her leg, which prevents her from walking properly, she devotes herself diligently to the agricultural activity. Every morning she goes to the plots of land to take care of her potato, peas and corn crops (which are her main products). After the harvest, she sells them in the wholesale market of the city. The main drive for her effort are her children, who also do some work to help her. Agriculture requires a lot of investment, Rosa started with the basics, and that's why she is very thankful for the educational talks she receives at her communal bank's meetings. This is her 11th loan with MFP and she commits to making the monthly repayments on time. She also expresses that she will fulfill all the meetings of her communal bank, 'Lindo Amanecer de Cumutay'. Rosa will assign the money to buy 10 bags of fertilizer (1500 soles) and two bags of pea seeds (1000 soles).
