Frida
Frida is an honest woman who is 36 years old; she lives with Nestor who is 36 years old, with whom she has four children, but they only with with two of them: Kevin, 10, and Joel, 2. The four of them live in the central jungle (native Pumpuriani community). As head of her native community, Frida is in charge of contracting on the farm lands, since the main activity for the residents is planting plantains and coffee. For 12 years, now, she has been planting hybrid corn, plantains, and coffee. To maintain the quality of her products, she constantly cares for them because if she doesn't cut back the weeds her plantations won't be able to grow strong and nourished. "You have to work every day," she says. Her work has made it so her plants are quality, so sellers visit her farmlands to buy her harvests. Frida doesn't just do farming, though. She set up a small store where she sells basic-needs items as well as cold drinks. The strong heat and remoteness of the place make it so she has good revenue. This is her fifth loan through Kiva partner MFP, and as president of her communal bank, she is thankful for the support that the bank members receive. Frida is planning to invest her loan in the maintenance of her plantations. She opened two hectares of farmland, and she is sure she will be able to plant more.
