Jesusa
Jesusa, 34, lives with her life partner and the father of her three children in her own house. She previously worked with the children of her village in a governmental educational program. But, they are not going to hire her again this year. In light of this, she started working with her husband in their coffee and banana fields. Banana is a fruit, which they harvest two times a week. They sell it from their own farm to the merchants who visit them.

To Jesusa, the farming work is not complicated. She wants to devote herself to buying and selling bananas. That is the way she can get greater earnings for her household. That is the reason she carefully clears her banana fields of shrubs. The more she produces the more of her own products she will be able to sell. Then she will buy less from other farmers.

This is her third loan with MFP. She attends all of her communal bank meetings with her husband. He likes to be informed and participate with his ideas. She will use the money she is asking for to buy chemical fertilizers to fertilize her banana and coffee crops.

Jesusa tiene 34 años, vive con su pareja y padre de sus 3 hijos, en su casa propia. Anteriormente trabajaba con los niños de su pueblo en un programa educativo del gobierno, pero para este año no la volvieron a contratar. En vista de ello, empezó a trabajar junto a su esposo en sus chacras de café y plátanos. El plátano es una fruta que ellos cosechan dos veces por semana y lo veden desde su misma chacra a los comerciantes que los visitan.
Para Jesusa, los trabajos agrícolas no son complicados, pero quiere dedicarse a la compra y venta de plátano, pues así podrá obtener mayores ganancias para su hogar. Por este motivo, se esmera en tener limpias de arbustos sus chacras de plátanos, pues entre más produzca podrá vender más de sus propios productos y comprará menos a otros agricultores.

Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, en todas las reuniones de su banco comunal asiste junto a su esposo, ya que a él le gusta estar enterado y participar con sus ideas. Con el dinero que solicita comprará fertilizantes químicos para abonar sus cultivos de plátanos y café.
