Faustina
Faustina is 47 years old and a native of the district of San Miguel. She is married to Augusto, 48, and they have two sons: John, 17, and Gilbert, 10. The family lives in their own home in the community of Palmapampa, district of Samugari. With a lot of hard work Faustina and her husband have been able to turn their land into very productive fields. Faustina is a farmer who makes a living cultivating cocoa and coffee plantations, sustainable products in that economy. During the harvest, Faustina hires day laborers to extract the fruit quickly from the plants. She has been working eight years in agriculture and is aware of her responsibilities. What she likes most about her work is caring for her crops since her income depends on it. She considers transporting the products from the farm to the city of San Francisco, where she can get the best prices for the products, to be the most difficult part. In the future, she wants to purchase more land to expand her crops. This is her 12th loan with Kiva partner MFP, and she has been very punctual with her past credits and hopes to be so again this time. She is much-loved by her fellow members in her community bank. With the loan of 3,000 soles, she will buy coffee and cocoa seeds and hire day laborers to remove weeds from her land.
