Juana's story

Juana is a 46 year-old single mother of 3 children, but only lives with 2. This family lives in their own home that they built a long time ago, located in an agricultural district. Serious yet of great attitude, Juana works with care. Thanks to her efforts she managed to raise and educate her children, and she continues doing it. Agriculture is her main economic activity. Juana has been working in the fields for 20 years. She began planting potatoes, peas and corn. In all these years she has learned about the climate and the diseases that attack the crops, but as she is intelligent she knows how to face it. In the fields she is also in charge of raising animals such as: sheep, horses, cows and pigs, those that are sold after fattening. In spite of having several responsibilities, she has time to take care of the crops, the animals and her family.Now it is time to plant peas and some potatoes, since the season of abundant harvests is approaching.

She is requesting once again your help to obtain these goals. This is her 12th loan with MFP. She gives her word to be punctual with her monthly payments. She feels happy to belong to the communal bank “Lindo Amanecer de Cumutay”(Pretty Dawn of Cumutay).
Juana will set aside 2200 Peruvian Soles to purchase 2 sacks of pea seeds and with the rest she will buy organic fertilizer.
