Dina
25 year-old Dina is a single mother who lives with her 6 year-old son, in a rental house, in Pichari district. Dina will never forget the afternoons of her youth when she watched her grandparents turn over the soil and plant cacao seeds. This is why she chose to work in farming, specifically growing cacao, in order to make the most of her grandparents' legacy. She does this work on her own plot of land, introducing new growing techniques and with the support of her family. She also hires laborers during the harvest season.

Cacao is currently in great demand both at a national and international level. For this reason, Dina feels satisfied with the profits that she makes when she sells her product to the middlemen in her town. This will be her second loan from MFP and she pledges to be punctual in making her repayments.

Dina will use these 2,000 Peruvian soles to hire laborers to help her weed her cacao plantings.

Dina de 25 años de edad, es madre soltera, vive con su menor hijo de 6 años de edad en una casa alquilada ubicada en el distrito de Pichari. Dina nunca olvidará aquellas tardes de su juventud, en las que observaba a sus abuelos a remover la tierra y a la vez poner las semillas de cacao. Es por ello que de ahí en adelante apostó por la actividad agrícola, específicamente al cultivo de cacao, para así sacarle el jugo al legado de sus abuelos. Esto lo realizaba en su parcela, introduciendo nuevas técnicas de cultivo, y con el apoyo de su familia, además contaba con peones que contrataba para la temporada de cosecha. Actualmente el cacao tiene mucha demanda a nivel nacional e internacional, es por ello que se siente satisfecha por las ganancias que recibe al vender su producto en Centros de Acopio de su localidad. Este será su segundo crédito con MFP, por lo que ella se compromete a ser puntual en el pago de sus cuotas. Con los 2.000 mil nuevos soles ella contratará peones para que le ayuden a limpiar su parcela de cacao.
