Rosalina
Rosalina is 28 years old and is a native of the Santa Rosa district. She lives in a rented house with her partner John, 27, and their two children John, 8, and Damaris, 7 months. Since she was a young girl working in her father's fields, Rosalina has had a passion for the crops. This prompted her to acquire her own land which she has been working independently for 7 years now. She grows coffee, cocoa and barbasco [inedible yam used in making synthetic steroidal hormones] on her 4 hectares of land. At harvest time she relies on laborers to harvest the fruit quickly. She is very committed to her work and because of the effort she puts forth everyday, today she is enjoying the fruits of her labor. She earns a good price for each kilogram of product sold. She does not like the winter because these months are teeming with insects and the rains hinder production and damage the fruits.

From now on she plans to increase her plantings of barbasco since Asian investors started a business packaging barbasco for treatments. This is her eighth loan with MFP and is committed to making her payments on time as she wants to be able to borrow more in the future. She is very committed to her communal bank. With the 2,000 soles (Peruvian currency) that she is requesting she will hire laborers to help her harvest the coffee and barbasco.
