Julia
Julia is 36 years old and she is married with Yoner, who is 37. The house they live in is made of basic material, and they have succeeded in buying it during the 10 years they have been living together. They have four children to whom they wish to offer a better standard of living.

She engages in planting cocoa and citrus fruits, and her husband helps her in this activity. She said she started working when she was very young, and it is now 10 years she has been working with her husband. What she likes the most about her activity is to see her fruits ready to be sold in the collection centers: here she is rewarded with a good price for every kilogram she brings to sell. However fighting the blight that affect her crops is the hardest part of her job. In time she wants to start a different and quieter activity while her husband works in their lands, but right now her priority is to finish harvesting her crops during these next few months.

This is her second loan with MFP, and she is grateful to the people who trust in her and who offer her their economic support to let her carry on with her activity. At the same time she is happy to be working with the responsible people of her Communal Bank.

The 2,000 PEN of this loan will be used to pay for day laborers to help her harvesting her cocoa crops.
