Esbil
Esbil, 21, is a single young woman. She lives in a leased house in the city of Santa Ana. She struggles to get ahead and help out her parents. When she’s in her location of Alto Yapaz she lives in her parents’ house. They are quite generous and encourage her to set life goals for herself. Because of this, for the last five years she’s been planting coffee, bananas and citrus fruit on fields her parents passed down to her. At the same time, she’s enrolled in studies for a career in Farming and Husbandry Engineering that she will complete this year. With profits from her harvests she makes loans to her classmates who repay with interest. This is how she pays her academic costs freeing her parents from some of them.

What she likes most is gathering coffee beans although she doesn’t enjoy carrying the heavy sacks all the way home. Since her parents have space available in their house when she finishes her studies she will set up a farming and livestock supply sales business there.

She is a member of the “Los Progresistas” (The Progressive Ones) communal bank and this is the second time she’s worked with MFP where she is committed to participate actively in the meetings and, above all, with each monthly payment.

Esbil will use the requested loan to buy several sacks of manure that she’ll spread among her plants to balance production.

Paralelamente estudia la carrera profesional de “Ingeniería Agropecuaria”, que terminará este año, pero las ganancias que obtiene de la cosechas los presta a sus compañeros de clase, quienes se lo devuelven con intereses, de esta manera ella cubre sus gastos académicos, liberando de algunas responsabilidades a sus padres.
