Sonia
Sonia is 38 years old, and her partner is Augusto, with whom she has five children, but they currently live with only three of them. Their family lives in a small and simple house, but one that they own, in the indigenous community of Boca del Ipoki, Chanchamayo.

At just 16 years old, Sonia gave birth to her first child and since then, she has been working in agriculture and using the lands that her parents and the community have given to her, she began to cultivate coffee, plantains, and ginger. "I have five plots of land, and every day I work either preparing and cleaning or cultivating them," she says. Her daily routine is tiring, as she begins by caring for her children, who are still of schooling age, she then cooks for the workers she has contracted with to help her with her agricultural work and she finishes her day working in the fields. Sonia has clear goals: improving her production with better fertilizers and and better care for the crops so that her sales will be better.

This is her sixth loan with MFP, and she gives her word that she will pay her monthly payments on time. She is a part of the community banking group "Sol Naciente" (Rising Sun) and she says she feels glad to be with the other members because they are timely and actively involved.

With this money, she will be able to pay the people she has contracted with to clean and improve her crops of coffee and plantains.

Su rutina diaria es cansada, empieza atendiendo a sus hijos, que todavía están en edad escolar, luego cocina para los trabajadores que contrata para que la ayuden en las labores agrícolas y finaliza con el trabajo en el campo. Sonia tiene sus metas claras: mejorar su producción con mejores fertilizantes y mayores cuidados para que sus ventas sean mejores.

Este es su crédito número 6 con MFP y da su palabra de pagar con puntualidad las cuotas mensuales. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Sol Naciente” y dice sentirse cómoda con sus compañeros, pues son puntuales y activos.
Con este dinero podrá pagar al personal que contratará para la limpieza de sus parcelas de café y plátanos.
