Gregori
Gregori is 36 years old and a single mother. She has three children who are 20, 18, and 10 years old. She lives with them in her own house located in the center of San Juan Centro Autiki, in the Pichanaki district, Chanchamayo. Gregori is a farming woman. At 15 she already knew how the business works from her parents who also make their living in the countryside. Since then she has known about the land and production.

She currently cultivates coffee and bananas. "My older children help me and in that way I save on personnel costs", she says.

She has 4 plots of land which each year produce between ten and twenty sacks of coffee at 70 kilograms each. She already knows her buyers and as such she does not worry about sales. Her contacts come from the city of Pichanaki and buy her products without fail.

To make an income for her daily expenses while the coffee is growing and begins to bear fruit, she sells bananas, which she can harvest each week. "I can't lose with bananas. I can harvest them every month of the year and there are always sales to be made", she happily comments.

With this diligence she is able to support and educate her children. She likes to work off the land, which is why she will continue with her work for a long time. This will be her eighth loan with MFP, which is why she gives her word that she will make her monthly payments responsibly. She mentions that Flor de San Juan (her communal bank) has given her help and satisfaction in meeting dependable people in her group. She will invest the money in the purchase of new coffee plants with which she will begin another planting.

Gregori es una mujer agricultora. A sus 15 años ya sabía como funcionaba el negocio de sus padres, quienes también se dedican al campo, desde ese entonces ya conocía sobre tierras y productos.
Actualmente cultiva café y plátanos. “Mis hijos mayores me ayudan y así me ahorro en pago de personal”, dice.
Tiene 4 parcelas las que al año le proporcionan de 10 a 20 sacos de café, cada uno de 70 kilos. Ella ya conoce a sus compradores, por eso no se preocupa en las ventas. Sus contactos llegan desde la ciudad de Pichanaki quienes sin dudarlo adquieren su producción.
Mientras el café crece y empieza a brotar sus granos, ella obtiene ingresos para solventar sus gastos diarios de la venta de plátanos, cuyas cosechas se dan a la semana. “Con el plátano no pierdo, todos los meses del año se cosecha y siempre hay ventas”, comenta contenta.
Con ese ahínco puede mantener y educar a sus hijos. El trabajo del campo es lo que el gusta hacer, por eso continuará con sus labores por mucho tiempo. Éste sería su crédito número 8 que obtendría de MFP, por eso da su palabra de pagar con responsabilidad las mensualidades. Menciona que, “Flor de San Juan” (su banco comunal) le ha brindado ayuda y satisfacciones por encontrar personas solidarias en su grupo. Invertirá el dinero en la compra de plantas nuevas de café, con las que iniciará otra siembra.
