Juana
Juana is 50 years old, married, and has six children. She lives in an area located in the Ayacuchana jungle, where she has her own house.

Ever since she was young, Juan has been carrying sacks of cacao. Even though this is work for men, she has never been embarrassed. With her characteristic energy she decided to engage in farming, the production and sale of cacao.

She has always respected the quality of her product. That is why she has potential buyers. The way she works is a consequence of much dedication to the land with her crops. She works 12 hours a day, and she only rests on Sundays.

She generally works with her children, but sometimes she has the help of laborers during harvest time. She normally sells her products in the centers where people gather in her area. Juana recognizes that there is much to do. That is why she plans to buy more land in the future. She will produce other products like coffee and citrus fruits in order to be able to diversify her portfolio of customers.

This is her third loan with MFP. She assures us that she will faithfully repay the loan like she did with her previous payments. She is grateful to her communal bank for the transparency in which it works. Juana will use the money she is requesting to buy supplies and fertilizer to provide adequate maintenance to her cacao crops.
