Victoria
Victoria, aged 43, is a very hard-working woman who lives with her husband Hugo, also 43. They live in their own house and have 5 children, to whom they give the best that they can, to offer them a bright future. With a lot of hard graft, Victoria has succeeded in turning their land into production: she grows cocoa and coffee, which she takes to the city of San Francisco to sell at wholesale. Her produce has given them the income they need to maintain themselves and meet the household expenses. For this reason she wants to re-invest what she earns into developing the business further. What she likes best about her work is taking care of the growing crop, which makes her very happy.

Victoria has been working in this way for 12 years, and because of this she has also succeeded in opening a grocery store, where local people come to buy the items she sells. Going forward, she would like to increase the range of groceries in her shop, and devote her time to running it while her husband helps by taking care of the crops.

This is Victoria's fifth loan from [field partner] MFP. She has been very punctual with her repayments in the past and expects to remain so now. She participates fully in her communal bank and is always aware of the agreements made by the group. With the 2,000 Soles, Victoria will be able to purchase groceries such as rice, sugar, sodas, and canned goods, among other things, so she can increase her shop.
