Jessica
Jessica is 24 years old and in a common-law relationship with Nilton, age 30. They have two children, a five-year-old and another one on the way. This happy family lives in a rented house in the community of Puente Pucartambo in Chanchamayo Province.


Thanks to her father, Jessica was able to learn the trade that enables her to support herself and provides opportunities to make progress. She makes wooden crates for holding and transporting fruit. Jessica sells the crates to different producers. She says, “This business is very profitable. All of the farmers need to keep their fruits in crates so that they don’t spoil. I am always generating sales and orders.”


Jessica also has a hectare of farmland that was offered by her father-in-law and two more hectares that she inherited from her mother. These parcels are used for growing coffee, which she cares for constantly and is always removing weeds. Jessica feels that her work in the fields is peaceful and frees her of outside problems. She has found this business to be both profitable and comforting. Jessica also grows bananas and harvests them every 15 or 20 days. She says that her first coffee crop will be ready in less than two years.


Jessica dreams of having a house of her own, so she strives without doubts day after day to reach that goal. This will be her 10th loan with MFP. Because of this assistance, she says that she will be punctual and responsible with her monthly payments. In addition, she is pleased with her Communal Bank named “Luz del Futuro” (Light of the Future) because of the close-knit work that she and the other members do. The money she will obtain will be used to acquire 10 bags of organic compost for her coffee crops.
