Antonieta
Antonieta is 43 years old. She lives with her partner, 44 year-old Gabino. They have three children but currently only look after two of them: 24 year-old Felicita and 6 year-old María. They live together in their own home which is located in Playa Hermosa-San Ramón (in the central Peruvian jungle).

Antonieta has been working in agriculture for 20 years. Her main crops are fruit such as pineapples and citrus fruits. Every morning she works hard, together with her husband Gabino, to grow their crops. Every weekend they sell their produce in the fruit wholesalers in the city from where middlemen constantly transport the fruit to different places in Peru. However, as Antonia has to constantly send money to the capital city, where her daughter Felicita is studying accountancy at a well-known University, 2 years ago she also opened a grocery store where she sells essentials to the residents of her town. She would like to continue working hard so that she can get her children ahead in life.

This is Antonieta's ninth loan with MFP and she says that she is happy with the work that she does with the other members of her community bank every month, where she learns to get ahead. Antonieta plans to use this loan to stock her grocery store business and, if the money reaches far enough, she will invest in buying some sacks of organic fertilizer that she needs for her crops.

Antonieta, de 43 años, convive con Gabino, de 44 años. Ambos tienen 3 hijos, pero cuida de dos de ellas, Felicita, de 24 y María, de 6 años de edad. En unión familiar ellos viven en su casa propia, ubicada en Playa Hermosa-San Ramón (selva central peruana). Hace 20 años que se dedicó a la agricultura, sus principales cultivos constan de frutos como piña, y cítricos. Todas las mañanas junto a su esposo Gabino trabajan arduamente para poder sacar adelante sus cultivos; los que cada fin de semana venden en el depósito de frutas que se ubica en la ciudad, donde los intermediarios constantemente llevan a diferentes lugares del Perú. Pero como Antonia tiene que mandar constantemente dinero a la capital, donde su hija Felicita, estudia Contabilidad en una universidad reconocida; abrió hace tan solo 2 años una tienda de comestibles donde vende productos de primera necesidad a los habitantes de su localidad, es así que ella quiere seguir trabajando arduamente para poder sacar a sus hijos adelante. Es el noveno crédito con MFP, y según menciona está contenta, con el trabajo que cada mes hace con los integrantes de su banco comunal, donde aprender a salir adelante. Con el crédito solicitado, ha pensado surtir su negocio de comestibles, y si el dinero le alcanza podrá invertir en la compra de algunos sacos de abono orgánico que le falta para su cultivo.
