Vilma
Vilma, 46, is a friendly and courageous woman, married to Alejandro, 55, with whom she has 6 children. They live in their own house with the 3 of their children who still live at home. She started, more than 25 years ago, planting pineapple and coffee on land that she owns, a business that she operates with help from her husband. During harvest season, she also hires laborers who help with the very difficult job of harvesting the crops. She and her husband would like to improve the quality of their products. What she most likes about farming is spreading manure on the land because taking care of the land ensures a good crop even when weather and disease cut into her output. She proudly says that farming is her main source of income, an income that has made it possible for her to build a house and live without having to give up basic necessities. She would like to increase her harvests and her sales in the local market, the town's market being her outlet for sales since she doesn't want to sell to the local farm collective. This is Vilma's first MFP loan and she assures us that she won't violate the trust of the other members of her community bank with whom she enjoys a good relationship. She will use the loan to buy sacks of fertilizer to protect her pineapple crop.

Vilma de 46 años, es una mujer valiente y risueña, casada con Alejandro de 55 años, ambos tienen 6 hijos pero sólo viven con 3 de ellos, en su vivienda propia. Hace mas de 25 años se dedica a plantar piña y café sobre sus propios terrenos, en donde su esposo lo apoya, pero en temporada de limpieza y cosecha contrata peones, ya que demanda de mucho esfuerzo realizar esta actividad, ambos esperan mejorar la calidad de sus productos. Lo que más le gusta de su labor es aplicar abono a sus plantaciones, porque está segura que con buenos cuidados obtendrá una excelente cosecha, pese a las variaciones climáticas ni las plagas echarán a perder su producción. Orgullosa afirma que la agricultura es su fuente principal de ingresos con el cual pudo construir su casa y ahora vive tranquila sin pasar necesidades. Por eso desea incrementar sus cosechas y sus ventas en el mercado de su ciudad, ya que no percibe lo que debería en los acopiadores de su localidad. Esta es la primera vez que tiene un crédito con MFP y asegura que no defraudará la confianza que le brindan los integrantes de su grupo comunal, con quienes disfruta gratos momentos. Con el crédito que solicita, comprará varios sacos de fertilizantes para proteger sus cultivos de piña.
