Esther is 37 and is married to Nildo. They have two daughters: Mayli and Gabriela. The family lives in their own home, which is located in a rural area.

She has around eight years of experience planting flowers (gladiolas), peas, potatoes and carrots. What she likes best about her work is that she is able to sell her harvests and see the fruit of all of her effort. Once a month she goes to the capital of the country to sell her flowers.

"All of my crops are profitable and every month I obtain income and am thus able to cover my main expenses," she says. The season for planting peas is approaching, and she needs financial support for this activity, because she doesn't want to fall behind.

This is her sixth loan with MFP. She says that she will be responsible in making her repayments on time. She belongs to the communal bank “Los Picaflores de Patay”, where she is glad to work with members who have goals that are similar to her own.

She will use the loan proceeds to purchase four sacks of peas for planting (using 2,000 soles). The remainder will be used to buy fertilizers.

Esther tiene 37 años, está casada con Nildo, con quien tiene dos hijas: Mayli y Gabriela. Esta familia vive en su casa propia ubicada en un zona rural.
Tiene cerca de 8 años dedicándose a la siembra de flores (gladiolos), arveja, papa y zanahoria. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es poder comercializar sus cosechas, ya que puede ver el fruto de tanto esfuerzo. Una vez al mes viaja a la capital del país a comercializar las flores. “Sembrar de todo es rentable, al cosechar cada producto, en cada mes, se obtiene ganancias y así se pueden cubrir los principales gastos”, menciona. Se acerca la temporada de siembra de arvejas, por eso requiere de ayuda, porque no quiere quedarse atrás.

Este es su crédito número 6 con MFP, menciona que pagará las cuotas con responsabilidad. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Los Picaflores de Patay”, donde se siente a gusto por tener socios cuyas metas son similares.
Con este dinero, Esther comprará cuatro bolsas de semillas de arvejas (con 2000 soles). Lo restante lo invertirá en la compra de fertilizantes.
