Gumercinda
Gumercinda is 29 years old. She lives in her own home located in a native community with the father of her children whom are 8 and 7 years old. She has five parcels of land in which she produces coffee, plantains, yucca, and corn.

Her primary crop is coffee, which she sells to the cafes in the city. The harvest is a process. First, she must select the most red grains and then remove the pulp and save the seeds. Then, she dries the grains so she can sell them. In regards to the plantain, yucca, and corn, the process is less labor intensive but just as important.

When there is no work to be done on the crops she also works as a laborer. Her husband does his part in always helping her with the arduous labor. Now, she is thinking of planting more coffee and will purchase more seedlings.

This is her firth credit with MFP which is why she feels grateful for the support. She belongs to the communal bank "Shatzoshis", a strong and unified group. She will invest this loan in the purchase of fertilizer for her new coffee crops.

Gumercinda tiene 29 años, vive con el padre de sus dos hijos de 8 y 7 años en su casa propia ubicada en una comunidad nativa.
Tiene cinco parcelas de terreno en las que produce café, plátanos, yuca y maíz. Pero mayormente café, que vende a las cooperativas cafetaleras de la ciudad. La cosecha es todo un acontecimiento, primero tiene que seleccionar los granos más rojos y luego quitarles la pulpa y salvar las pepas o granos, después los hace secar para venderlos. Con el plátano, la yuca y el maíz la rutina es menor, pero igual de importante. Cuando el trabajo cesa, Gumercinda también labora en otras parcelas como jornalera. Por su parte, su esposo siempre la apoya en estas arduas labores. Ahora piensa sembrar más café, para ello invertirá en la compra de plantitas.

Este es su quinto crédito con MFP, por eso se siente agradecida con el apoyo brindado. Pertenece al banco comunal “Shatzoshis”, un grupo sólido y unido.
Invertirá el dinero de este préstamo en la compra de bolsas de abono para sus nuevos cultivos de café.
