Antonia
Antonia is 38 years old and a hardworking mother. She is married to Rómulo (age 29) and has five children, but only three live with them. She lives in her own house, which was built after much effort and sacrifice.


Her youngest daughter was born three years ago with a disease in which her body cannot fend for itself. Antonia began to see the world from a different perspective. She was overcome with desires to provide her daughter with an adequate quality of life, so she managed to work with greater devotion without having to neglect her for one second.


Antonia and her husband have been growing coffee for 22 years and enjoy all aspects of farming, especially selecting the quality of their harvest so that they can generate the best earnings to help cover the education of their children, their food, and some savings so that later they can buy a house in the city. There they can open a grocery store in addition to harvesting coffee beans. Leaving their home during the harvest season would not be easy, but it would be worth it so that their young daughter could receive the proper treatment.


This is her first loan with MFP. Antonia says she is grateful for this opportunity given to her by the Institution and the members of her Communal Bank. With the loan of 1000 PEN that she requested, she will hire workers to help with harvesting her coffee.

Antonia tiene 38 años, es una madre de familia muy laboriosa, está casada con Rómulo de 29 años, con quien tiene 5 hijos, de los cuales vive sólo con tres. La casa que habitan es propia y la construyeron a base de mucho esfuerzo y sacrificio.

Cuando su última hija nació (hace 3 años) con una enfermedad que le impide valerse por sí sola, Antonia empezó a ver el mundo desde otra perspectiva, pues los anhelos de brindarle una adecuada calidad de vida, han logrado que trabaje con mayor ahínco, sin descuidarla ni un segundo.
Junto a su esposo, llevan 22 años cultivando café y refiere que todo de la agricultura le agrada, sobre todo seleccionar la calidad de los frutos, ya que le permite obtener buenas ganancias con las que cubre la educación de sus hijos, los alimentos y le permite ahorrar para más adelante comprar una casa en la ciudad; donde instalará una tienda de comestibles, además de acopiar los granos de café. Dejar por temporadas su vivienda no le será fácil, pero valdrá la pena porque su hija menor podrá recibir un tratamiento adecuado.

Este es el primer crédito tiene con MFP y manifiesta estar muy agradecida con la oportunidad que le brinda la entidad y los integrantes de su banco comunal. Los mil soles que solicita los invertirá en contratar operarios que le ayuden a cosechar su café.
