Sherlyn
Sherlyn is 20 years old. Her partner is Rubén, with whom she has an eight month old son. They live in a rustic house, their own, located in the indigenous community Boca del Ipoki, in Chanchamayo.

She has been farming for two years, growing different varieties of citrus fruits such as oranges, mandarins, tangelos (hybrid) and tangerines (hybrid). She also has plots of bananas she planted last year and she will already begin picking their first fruits.

The citrus business gives her great satisfaction but there are months when the price drops almost 50%. Consequently, this time she is planning to start growing coffee and to do so she will require a great deal of support. In order to harvest her first coffee crops she will have to wait three years. She is prepared to wait patiently while harvesting her bananas and citrus fruits.

This is Sherlyn’s first loan with MFP and she is enthusiastic about the opportunity. She just joined the “Sol Naciente” Communal Bank and believes that the goals of the group will be met promptly and consistently.

With this money, she will be able to purchase coffee plant nurseries whose price is 30 céntimes per plant; she will buy around 900 plants for her parcel.

Sherlyn tiene 20 años, su pareja es Rubén, con quien tiene un hijo de 8 meses de nacido. Ellos viven en una casa rústica, pero propia, ubicada en la comunidad nativa Boca del Ipoki, Chanchamayo.

Hace 2 años que se dedica a la agricultura, con el cultivo de frutos cítricos de distintas variedades como: naranjas, mandarinas, tanyelo (híbrido) y tanyarinas (híbrido). Además tiene parcelas de plátanos que el año pasado sembró, ahora ya empezará a coger los primeros frutos.
El negocio de los cítricos le da muchas satisfacciones, pero hay meses en que el precio baja casi en un 50%, por eso esta vez está pensando iniciar un cultivo de café, para ello requiere de mucho apoyo. Pero para ver los primeros frutos de su cafetal tendrán que pasar 3 años. Ella esperará con paciencia mientras coseche el plátano y los cítricos.

Este es su primer crédito con MFP y se siente entusiasmada por la oportunidad. Además acaba de formar parte del banco comunal “Sol Naciente”, cree que con puntualidad y constancia sus metas como grupo se concretarán.
Con este dinero podrá comprar plantas de café en viveros, cuyo precio es de 30 céntimos por planta; comprará alrededor de 900 plantitas para una parcela.
