Pilar
Pilar, 25, lives with Alex, 28, with whom she has two children. They all live together in their own house located in the settlement of Mantaro in Pichari District.

Pilar has been farming bananas and cocoa beans in Mantaro for five years. At first she started farming bananas but soon introduced cocoa beans which are in their first fruit production phase. She decided to grow cocoa beans because it has a very good market price like bananas. To date, everything is turning out very well but her inconvenience is that her parcel of land is on the banks of the Apurimac River and every winter the river overflows its banks and washes away her crops. Because of this she’s thinking about buying a new parcel of land where she can continue growing her crops.

Pilar is happy with the work she does because thanks to her good production her family has a dignified life.

This is her second MFP loan so she commits to make her installment payments punctually. Pilar is grateful to those leading her communal bank because they did good work during the first cycle. She will use the 2000 new soles to provide crop maintenance to her cocoa bean parcel hiring day laborers and buying sacks of manure.

Pilar se dedica al cultivo de Plátano y cacao en el centro poblado de Mantaro desde hace 5 años atrás. Al inicio empezó cultivando plátano seguidamente introdujo plantaciones de cacao que ahora ya están en sus primeras fructificaciones. Ella decidió cultivar cacao por que tiene un buen precio en el mercado al igual que el plátano, hasta la actualidad todo le va muy bien pero tiene un inconveniente su terreno agrícola esta al borde del río Apurimac y cada invierno que llega el río acrecienta y arrasa su cultivo, por eso esta pensando comprarse un nuevo terreno donde pueda seguir cultivando sus productos. Pilar está contenta con el trabajo que realiza pues gracias a su buena produccción su familia tiene una vida digna. Este es su segundo crédito con MFP, por lo que ella se compromete en cancelar puntualmente el pago de sus cuotas. Pilar agradece a los que presiden su banco comunal por el buen trabajo que hicieron en el primer ciclo. Con los 2, 000 nuevos soles realizará el mantenimiento de parcela agrícola de cacao, contratando peones y sacos de abono.
