Nora
31 year-old Nora is from Quimbiri district. She lives with her partner, 40 year-old David, and they have two children: 10 year-old Leydi and 2 year-old Jhosep. They live together in their own home which is located in Quimbiri district.

Nora's parents taught her the value of work and the need to work hard to earn money since she was a little girl. Nora's business activity is buying products from farmers, such as coffee, annatto, cacao and turmeric. These are all products which are native to the rainforest area of the Apurimac River Valley.

Nora has been working for 14 years and she has the support of her partner who is in charge of loading and weighing the produce. Nora then takes the produce and sells it to well-known wholesalers such as Cooperativa Agraria, Cacao Vrae and Machupichu who pay her a percentage for every kilogram of produce she delivers. Nora's business makes her a good quantity of money each year. However, January, February and March are rainy months and roads wash away. This affects the journeys that she makes to transport her products.

Nora's plans are to continue working with the same determination in order to get the members of her family ahead in life. She will use the loan she has requested as capital so that she can buy products from farmers. This is Nora's 11th loan from MFP and she has been very punctual in repaying her previous loans. Nora is a member of a community bank. However, because she is a member who repays her loans punctually, she is also able to access an individual loan.
