Luz
Luz, age 27, and her life partner, Camilo, have two children, ages nine and seven.

Luz has been working in agriculture for ten years. She learned how to do this from her parents, and she perfected her work alongside her husband. Thanks to her effort she has been able to get her two school age children ahead.

Luz produces coffee and oranges on two parcels of land. She says that harvesting the citrus is less tiring and less of an investment. However, the prices they sell for at times are not so good. Now she will plant bananas.

Luz is confident that she will get new land and produce more coffee and oranges. This is one of her closest goals.

This is her seventh loan with MFP. She gives her word that she will be punctual with her monthly payments. She belongs to the Huacamayo communal bank. She is happy that it has enterprising members.

She will use the money from this loan to buy banana plants at 50 cents per each one. She will also buy bags of fertilizer to successfully start her next planting.

Luz tiene 27 años, su pareja es Camilo, con quien tiene dos hijos de 9 y 7 años.
Hace 10 años que se dedica a la agricultura, actividad que aprendió de sus padres y perfeccionó al lado de su esposo. Gracias a su esfuerzo ha podido sacar a delante a sus dos hijos quienes ahora se encuentran en edad escolar. Luz produce café y naranjas en dos parcelas de terreno. Menciona que la cosecha de cítricos es menos cansada y de menos inversión, pero los precios de venta a veces no son tan buenos. Por otro lado, el café requiere de mucho cuidado e inversión, pero sus precios son satisfactorios. Ahora sembrará plátanos. Luz confía que adquirirá nuevos terrenos y producirá más café y naranjas. Es una de sus metas más cercanas.

Este es su crédito número 7 con MFP, por eso da su palabra de ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Huacamayo”, del que se siente contenta por tener socios emprendedores.
Con el dinero de este préstamo podrá comprar mamones de plátano cuyo precio es de 50 céntimos cada uno. También comprará bolsas de abono para empezar con éxito esta siembra.
