Lucila
30-year-old Lucila has been living with her partner Ronald for 10 years. He is the father of her two children: 9-year-old Leticia and 5-year-old Yadira. The family live together in their own home in San Juan Centro Autiki, in Pichanaki district, in Chachamayo province. Lucila is an organized woman. Her house and her family reflect this outstanding virtue. She has a business in her own home. "I have a grocery store where I sell a bit of everything. I have had it for one year", she comments, adding that it is doing very well.

Lucila is also a farmer. She has three plots of land where she grows bananas and a little coffee. She obtains 15 to 20 sacks of coffee beans. She is aware that this work is tiring and time-consuming. For this reason, Ronald works mainly in the fields and Rosa has to close her business to attend to her crops. Lucila divides her time carefully between her children, her household, her business and her crops. Thanks to her efforts, she is able to ensure that her income covers her basic needs. She enjoys her work and, for that reason, she will continue carrying out her agricultural work. Lucila is now planning to further expand her coffee plantings and will need to invest in plants and fertilizers.

This will be Lucila's eighth loan from MFP and she gives her word that she will be punctual in making her repayments. 'Flor de San Juan' is the name of her community bank. She feels happy to belong to such a solid and active group. She will use her money to stock up with merchandise for her business. She will also be able to pay the laborers who she will hire to weed her crops.

Su hogar y familia reflejan su sobresaliente valor. Cuenta con un negocio en su propia casa, “tengo una tienda de abarrotes, ahí vendo de todo, hace 1 año”, menciona, añadiendo que le va muy bien.
Además se dedica a la agricultura. Posee 3 parcelas de terrenos donde produce plátano y un poco de café. Obteniendo de 15 a 20 sacos de café seco. Es consiente que este trabajo es cansado y absorbente, por eso Ronald se encuentra en el campo mayormente y Rosa tiene que cerrar su negocio para atender sus cultivos.
Lucila distribuye bien su tiempo, para sus hijos, su hogar, su negocio y sus cultivos. Gracias a ese esfuerzo puede estar segura que sus ingresos económicos solventarán sus necesidades básicas.
Le gusta realizar estas actividades por eso continuará con sus labores agrícolas. Ahora piensa ampliar más sus sembríos de café, por ello deberá invertir en plantas y abonos. Éste sería su crédito número 8 que obtendría de MFP, por eso da su palabra de ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas. “Flor de San Juan” es el nombre de su banco comunal. Se siente contenta de pertenecer a un grupo sólido y participativo. Con el dinero podrá abastecer la mercadería para su negocio, también podrá pagar a los jornaleros que contratará para hacer la limpieza de sus cultivos.
