Leonarda
Leonarda is 45 years old and lives with her partner, who is the father of her four children. She lives in a rented house in a town located in the Ayacuchan jungle called Palmapampa.


Leonarda never forgot those afternoons in her youth when she watched her grandparents clear the land and plant cacao seeds. This is the reason why she chose to pursue farming, specifically growing cacao, in order to honor her grandparents’ legacy. She now develops new farming techniques with the occasional help of her relatives, but she also hires workers for the harvest season. Cacao has high demand on a national and international level. Leonarda feels satisfied with the revenue she generates from selling her product to the collection centers in her area. Later on she wants to buy more land so that she can complete on the same level as her neighbors.


This is her thirteenth loan with MFP. Leonarda commits to making her payments and conforming to the work methodology of her Communal Bank. The money she requested will be invested in supplies and organic fertilizers for her fields so that she can improve the quality of her product for the next harvest and sell it at a better price.

Leonarda tiene 45 años, vive con su pareja y padre de sus 4 hijos. Vive en una localidad en la ceja de selva ayacuchana denominada “Palmapampa”, en una casa alquilada.

Ella nunca olvidará aquellas tardes de su juventud cuando observaba a sus abuelos a remover la tierra y colocar las semillas de cacao. Es por ello de que ahí en adelante apostó por la actividad agrícola, específicamente al cultivo de cacao, para así honrar el legado de sus abuelos.
Ahora desarrolla nuevas técnicas de cultivo con el apoyo ocasional de sus familiares, pero también contrata peones en tiempo de cosecha. Este producto tiene mucha demanda a nivel nacional e internacional, es por ello que se siente satisfecha por las ganancias que recibe al vender su producto en los centros de acopio de su localidad. En adelante, piensa comprar más terrenos, para así competir de manera equitativa con sus vecinos.

Este es su décimo tercer préstamo con MFP, por lo que se compromete a cumplir con sus respectivos pagos, además está conforme con la metodología de trabajo de su banco comunal. Con el dinero que solicita invertirá en insumos y abono para su chacras, con la finalidad de mejorar la calidad de su producto para que su próxima cosecha la venda a mejor precio.
