Marcelina
Marcelina is 40 years old and originally from the city of San Francisco. She lives in her own home in the village of Limonshayocc with her partner Edgar, age 42, and their four children who inspire her to continue working hard. Marcelina resides in the green pastures of the village center where one can breathe fresh air and be surrounded by animal and plant life. By maintaining her strength, Marcelina is able to work with great effort on her land. She grows crops that are native to the Peruvian jungle such as citrus fruits, cacao, and coffee. Her harvest is very productive because of her dedication. Marcelina has been farming for 18 years and is an expert at working hard in the fields. During the harvest season, she needs to hire workers in order to speed up the work. She enjoys her job and the income she earns has allowed her to buy furniture for her home and acquire two more hectares of land for planting.


Marcelina is requesting this loan to strengthen her farm so that she can gain more productive returns. For this reason, she has utilized the loans that MFP provides. Going forward, she hopes to buy additional farmland to improve her financial situation and continue farming with the same level of determination. This will be her sixth loan and she is very pleased to know that she has financial support. Marcelina feels confident that she can buy the things she needs and is willing to submit her loan payments on time. The loan she requested will be used to buy several sacks of organic fertilizer so that her crops can thrive.

Marcelina de 40 años, es natural de la ciudad de San Francisco. Vive en su propia casa en el caserío de Limonchayocc junto a su pareja Edgar de 42 años y sus 04 queridos hijos quienes la inspiran para seguir trabajando arduamente. Marcelina vive en las verdes praderas de su centro poblado, donde respira viento fresco y rodeado de la fauna y flora silvestre que la mantienen con gran fortaleza para trabajar con más ahínco en sus tierras. Ahí cultiva plantas nativas de la zona selvática peruana, como cítricos, cacao y café productos que logró trabajarlos con mucha entrega para que sean muy fructíferos. Marcelina viene arando sus tierras desde sus 18 años y hoy es toda una conocedora de la ardua labor que se ejerce en el campo agrícola. En tiempos de cosecha y traslado de productos ella necesariamente tiene que contratar peones para apresurar su trabajo. A ella le encanta su trabajo por que gracias a ello compró varios muebles para su hogar y también adquirió dos hectáreas más de terreno para sembrar. Marcelina solicita el crédito para fortalecer sus tierras y volverlas muy productivas razón por la cual acude a los créditos que MFP facilita. En adelante para el bien de su economía comprará nuevas tierras y seguirá cultivando con el mismo empeño que la caracteriza. Este será su sexto crédito por la cual se siente muy contenta de saber que tendrá un apoyo financiero, ya que así se sentirá segura de comprar lo solicitado y esta dispuesta a devolver puntualmente los pagos programados. Con el crédito solicitado comprará varios sacos de abono orgánico, de esa manera sus plantas lucirán mas frondosos.
