Yanett is 40 years old and lives with her two children, Milagros and Sharon, in the house she inherited from her parents. As a child she learned how to do hard agricultural work, however she still does not own her own agricultural land although she has 14 years of experience as a farmer. Her principal crops are potatoes, maize and carrots, which she very carefully tends every day from the early hours until dusk. “I have established buyers who come to the farm to buy the entire harvest,” she states.

She belongs to the San Santiago Communal Bank and this is her first loan from MFP. She is grateful for the opportunity provided and promises to make her payments on time. Yanett will invest the money from this loan in the purchase of corn seeds and organic fertilizer to spread in her potato and corn fields.

Yanett tiene 40 años, vive con sus dos hijos: Milagros y Sharon, en la casa que le heredaron sus padres.
Desde niña aprendió a trabajar con esfuerzo y coraje en la agricultura, aún no posee terrenos propios, pero ya tiene 14 años de experiencia; sus principales sembríos constan de papa, maíz y zanahoria, los cuales cuida con mucho esmero, todos los días, desde las primeras horas hasta el anochecer. “Ya tengo compradores fijos, quienes llegan a mis chacra para comprar la cosecha íntegra”, afirma.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “San Santiago” y este es su primer crédito con MFP, por lo que agradece la oportunidad brindada y por ese motivo promete cumplir con el pago puntual de sus cuotas.
Yanett invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de semilla de maíz y fertilizantes orgánicos para esparcir entre sus sembríos de papa y maíz.
