Dina
Dina, 28, lives with Velarde and they have six children whose ages range from 13 years to 1 year. She and her family live in a humble, but theirs, house located in the indigenous community of Yavirironi, Río Negro District, Satipo Province.

Dina is a woman who knows how to organize herself. At her age, she administers five parcels in production: coffee (2-1/2 lots), bananas (2 lots) and cocoa beans (1/2 lot). This is how Dina distributes her land so that it will produce products all year. “I sell the entire harvest in Río Negro (city),” she comments, adding that she already knows the most reliable and best paying buyers in her zone. She expects to harvest 40 sacks this year, a good harvest, but one due to her hard work, sacrifice and constant investment.

Dina needs extra staff to maintain her crops so she hires laborers that she pays a daily wage. She is happy with her work because everything she gets is through her efforts. Her children are still little so she strives for them every day. She plans to fix up her house adding more comforts to it and to provide her children with a good education.

This would be her first loan with MFP so she thanks you in advance for your support. She commits to be punctual with her monthly installment payments. The name of her communal bank is “Inkani” and she’s excited about working with responsible people. She will use the money to buy foodstuffs and merchandise at wholesale to prepare the day laborers’ meals that she will also pay to clear weeds from her crops.

Ella y su familia viven en una casa humilde pero propia ubicada en la comunidad nativa de Yavirironi, distrito de Río Negro, provincia de Satipo. Dina es una mujer que sabe organizarse. A su edad ya administra 5 lotes de terrenos que producen: café (2 lotes y medio), plátanos (2 lotes) y cacao (medio lote). De esa manera Dina distribuye sus terrenos, de tal manera que le proporcione productos para todo el año.
“Toda la cosecha la vendo en Río Negro (ciudad)”, comenta, añadiendo que en su distrito ya conoce a los compradores más fieles y pagadores.
Ella espera cosechar 40 sacos para este año. Una buena cosecha. Pero detrás de eso, está la ardua labor, el sacrificio y la inversión constante.
Dina requiere de personal extra para mantener sus cultivos. Por eso contrata peones, a quienes paga al día. Está contenta con su trabajo, porque todo lo que obtiene es por su esfuerzo.
Sus hijos aún son pequeños y es por ellos, por quienes lucha cada día. En sus planes está arreglar su casa con mayores comodidades y brindarles una buena educación a sus hijos. Éste sería su primer crédito con MFP, por eso agradece de antemano su apoyo. Se compromete en ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. “Inkani” es el nombre de su banco comunal, está emocionada de trabajar con personas responsables. Con el dinero podrá comprar víveres y mercadería al por mayor, para preparar los alimentos de los jornaleros, a quienes también pagará para la limpieza de sus cultivos.
