Melania
59 year old Melania has lived with Ignacio for more than 27 years. They have three children who live independently. Melania and Ignacio live together in their own house in Santa Rosa de Palomar in the district of San Luis de Shuaro, in the province of Chanchamayo. Melanie began working in the fields 30 years ago. In all this time she has learnt what she needs to know to successfully sell her produce (coffee and bananas). She sees her sacrifices pay-off when she sells her goods to the wholesalers, who visit the area all the time, and she makes a good profit. She also has the support of her husband, who sells fish to door-to-door in the town. And the goods that are sold in the market are a result of her labors in the field. Thanks to her hard work, she has been able to extend her house, adding more rooms for her children to stay in when they go to visit. In time, she hopes to improve her fields and plant much more coffee. She belongs to the community bank "Aroma de Café" and this is her 5th loan from MFP. She promises once again to make her repayments on time, as she has done with earlier loans. She is glad to be part of the community bank because all the members are responsible and united. When she receives her loan, Melania will use it to buy sacks of organic fertilizer so that her coffee plants will grow without any great difficulty.

Melania e Ignacio viven juntos en una casa propia en la localidad de Santa Rosa de Palomar en el distrito de San Luis de Shuaro, provincia de Chanchamayo. Hace 30 años que Melania se entregó al trabajo de campo. En todo este tiempo aprendió lo necesario para comercializar con éxito sus productos (café y plátanos). Pero ve que su sacrificio es recompensado, cuando vende a los mayoristas que visitan su zona constantemente, obteniendo buenas ganancias. Además de tener el apoyo de su esposo, quien vende pescado a los pobladores de su localidad, realizando la venta de casa en casa. Y cuando termina de repartir la mercadería, apoya en las labores del campo. Producto de su intenso trabajo ha logrado ampliar su hogar con más cuartos para hospedar a sus hijos cuando vayan a visitarla. Con el tiempo, espera poder adecuar sus tierras para plantar mucho más café. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Aroma de café” y este es el quinto crédito con MFP. Por otro lado se compromete una vez más a cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas, como en anteriores créditos. Además le agrada ser parte de su banco comunal porque todos sus integrantes son personas responsables y muy solidarias. Melania de recibir su apoyo, invertirá el dinero solicitado en la compra de varios sacos de abono orgánico para sus cultivos de café que están creciendo sin mayores dificultades.
