Marianela
Marianela is 24 years old and lives with her partner, Jean, with whom she has a daughter named Sarely. They live in a house that they own in the native community of San Román Bajo, located in the Perené district and the Chanchamayo province. She works a lot and agriculture is her life since she grew up surrounded by coffee plantations. Her parents worked in coffee production and following their example, she does as well.


Marianela is content and she says that she has four parcels of land where she only grows coffee. She cares for all of her crops equally and she has always done well in sales. When prices have fallen, she has had several difficulties but she never lost her investment. She and her partner work together but it is not enough, which is why they hire operations staff to speed up the work. “I get 35-40 sacks from my fields. I do well”, she says.


She has plans for the short term, including renting land to increase her coffee production, as it is very profitable. This way, she will provide her family with the financial support she has been longing for. This will be Marianela’s first loan with MFP and she promises to make her repayments on time. She is happy being a member of La Bella Durmiente Communal Bank.


With this loan, she will be able to buy seven sacks of organic fertilizer and pay the day laborers for working her coffee fields.

Marianela de 24 años convive con Jean, su pareja con quien tiene 1 hija llamada Sarely. Ellos viven en una casa propia en la comunidad nativa San Román Bajo en el distrito de Perené, provincia de Chanchamayo. Ella trabaja mucho. La agricultura es su vida por que desde niña creció rodeada de plantaciones de café. A eso se dedicaban sus padres y ella, fiel a ese ejemplo también lo hace.
Marianela contenta, comenta que tiene 4 parcelas de terrenos, en ellos siembra solo café. A todos sus cultivos cuida por igual y siempre le ha ido bien en las ventas. Muchas veces, cuando el precio bajaba tenía problemas pero nunca perdía su inversión. Ella y su pareja trabajan juntos, pero no es suficiente, por ello invierten en la contrata de personal operario para apresurar las jornadas. “Obtengo de 35 a 40 sacos de mis chacras (terrenos). Me va bien”, dice.
Ella tiene planes que los realizará en poco tiempo. Para ello arrendará tierras para aumentar su producción de café, por que es muy rentable. De esa manera brindará a su familia la estabilidad económica que tanto aspira. Sería la primera vez que Marianela accedería a un préstamo de MFP. Se responsabiliza de ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. Se siente contenta de pertenecer al banco comunal “La Bella Durmiente”.
Con el dinero podrá comprar 7 bolsas de abonos orgánicos y pagará los servicios de los jornaleros para cultivar sus sembríos de café.
