Ana
Ana is 42 years old and married to José. The couple have five children but only live with one daughter, their 16 year old. The house in which they live is rustic and located in an indigenous community.

Ana has been farming since she was 15 years old. She used to help her parents harvest their coffee. She now has six plots of land: five are sown with coffee and one with cassava and bananas. With the help of her grown-up children, Ana manages to weed and grow all her crops which saves her money on paying workers. She sells all of her produce to the coffee cooperatives in the city. She sells her bananas and cassava in the central market. Ana mentions that her sales are good because these products are always in demand. In the future, she plans to buy a car so that she can get about easily. In order to achieve this, she will continue working on her land so that she can continue saving up.

This is Ana's fifth loan from MFP. She gives her word that she will make her loan repayments punctually. She is a member of the 'Shantzoshis' community bank and feels happy working with such optimistic group members.

Ana will invest her loan money in buying coffee seedlings so that she can renew her plantings. She will also pay staff who she will hire to weed her crops.

Ana tiene 42 años, está casada con José, con quien tiene 5 hijos, pero solo vive con una hija, la de 16 años. La casa donde viven es tipo rústica y se ubica en una comunidad nativa.
Desde los 15 años se dedica a la agricultura cuando ayudaba a sus padres a cosechar el café. Ahora cuenta con 6 parcelas; 5 de café, y una de yuca y plátanos. Con la ayuda de sus hijos mayores logra limpiar y cultivar todos sus productos, así se ahorra en el pago de personal. Toda su producción la comercializa en las cooperativas cafetaleras de la ciudad, en cuanto al plátano y la yuca los lleva hasta el mercado central para ofrecerlos. Menciona que le va bien en las ventas, porque estos productos siempre tienen demanda. Para más adelante, piensa comprarse un auto para movilizarse con facilidad, pero para eso continuará en las labores del campo para seguir ahorrando.

Este es su quinto préstamo con MFP, por eso da su palabra de pagar con puntualidad las mensualidades. Pertenece al banco comunal “Shantzoshis”, y se siente a gusto de trabajar con socios optimistas.
Invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de plantitas de café para renovar sus sembríos. Además pagará al personal que contratará para la limpieza de sus cultivos.
