Luz
Luz is 30 years old. Her partner is Juan Carlos and the couple have three children who are 11, 8 and 5 years old. They all live in their own home which they built in the indigenous community of San Pablo de Shimashiro (in the central jungle).

Luz is a farmer. She knows that the land in her area is fertile and suitable for growing different crops. She has been in this business for 8 years and she says that she likes farm work because she is in charge of her own work hours and she is in touch with nature.

Luz owns 12 'cuadras' (about twenty-one and a half acres) of land where she grows coffee, bananas and cassava. She just finished harvesting her coffee beans in June and made good profits that she will now invest in buying bags of fertilizer. Her plans for the immediate future are to sow a crop of ginger plants. In order to achieve this, she will need to hire laborers and buy seeds and bags of fertilizer.

This is Luz's second loan from MFP. She is grateful for the trust that was placed in her with her first loan and she confirms that she will make her repayments on time again with this loan. She feels happy working with her community bank ('Los Shirokis') because the members are neighbors and family members.

Luz will invest this loan in paying laborers to weed her coffee crops and sow ginger. She will pay each one 30 soles a day.
