Julia
Julia is 38 years old and married to Nemesio, with whom she has five children. She has made a living in agriculture since she was 17 years old. She learned the trade helping her parents with the crops and harvests, and now that she has her own family she does it with all her effort. She has eight plots of land cultivating coffee and a little bit of bananas. "This year I harvested 30 to 40 sacks of coffee, but next year I will harvest more," she says. That is how it is with the first harvests of a new crop. She has two parcels that have already matured and each year their production grows, depending on the conditions and the amount of fertilizer she spreads out. Julia will continue working in the field because it is what she likes to do and it is what she uses to provide and will continue to provide for her family until the end of her days, she says. This will be her seventh loan from Kiva partner MFP, and she promises to make her payments on time. She belongs to the “Huacamayo” community bank, where the members are responsible and close-knit. She plans to use the loan to purchase bags of organic fertilizer for her plots of coffee and bananas.

Julia tiene 38 años, está casada con Nemesio, el padre de sus cinco hijos.
Se dedica a la agricultura desde que tenía 17 años, aprendió al apoyar a sus padres en las cosechas y cultivos, y ahora que tiene una familia propia lo hace con mucho esmero. Posee ocho parcelas de terreno donde cultiva café y un poco de plátanos. “Este año coseché de 30 a 40 sacos de café, pero el próximo año cosecharé más”, menciona. Es así en las primeras cosechas. Tiene dos parcelas que ya le botan como tres producciones y cada año aumentan sus cosechas, dependiendo de los cuidados y la cantidad de abono que se le esparce. Julia continuará con las labres del campo porque es lo que le gusta hacer y es con lo que mantuvo y mantendrá a su familia hasta el final de sus días, dice.

Este es el crédito número 7 que recibió de MFP, por eso se compromete en pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales. Pertenece al banco comunal “Huacamayo”, donde los socios son responsables y solidarios.
Invertirá este crédito en la compra de bolsas de abono orgánico para sus terrenos de café y plátano.
