Eliana
Eliana is 55 years old and her partner is Rosalino, with whom she has three children ages 17, 16, and 12.

Thanks to her community she has five plots of land where she cultivates coffee and bananas and sometimes also yuca and corn, in order to get out of her difficult situation. "The corn is harvested in four months and it sells quickly, but I rarely plant corn," she says.

Eliana receives support from Rosalino and her three children, but the activity that absorbs her time is the cleaning of her crops. Every month she has to cut out the bad weeds that grow between her plantings, and since she has five blocks sometimes she and her family are not enough to cover this work. This is why they have to hire additional workers. With the certainty of having a good production she offers her coffee with advance deposits, which gives them money in advance, and she is always certain that she will complete the order.

This is her 7th loan that she has received from MFP and for this reason she promises, once again, to pay the monthly fees on time as she did previously. She belongs to the communal bank "Las Hormiguitas" (The Little Ants), a mutually supportive group where she feels comfortable with the educational talks and the visits that they make.

With this money she will be able to buy bags of fertilizer in order to fertilize her coffee plants, and to also pay the laborers who will help them in cleaning up the weeds.

Eliana tiene 55 años, su pareja es Rosalino, con quien tiene tres hijos de 17, 16 y 12 años.
Gracias a su comunidad cuenta con cinco parcelas de terreno donde cultiva café y plátanos, a veces también produce yuca y maíz, para salir de apuros. “El maíz se cosecha en cautro meses y se vende rápido, pero solo siembro maíz raras veces”, menciona. Eliana recibe el apoyo de Rosalino y sus tres hijos, pues la actividad que absorbe su tiempo es la limpieza de sus cultivos. Cada mes tiene que cortar la mala hierba que crece entre sus plantaciones, como tiene cinco cuadras a veces ella y su familia no abastece este trabajo, por ello tienen que contratar personal adicional. Con la seguridad de tener una buena producción ofrece su café a depósitos con anticipación, quienes le dan adelantos de dinero y ella siempre está segura que cumplirá con el pedido.

Este es el crédito número 7 que recibe de MFP, por esa razón se compromete, una vez más, en pagar las cuotas mensuales puntualmente, como anteriormente lo hizo. Pertenece al banco comunal “Las Hormiguitas”, un grupo sólido, donde se siente a gusto por las charlas educativas y las visitas que se le realizan.
Con este dinero podrá comprar bolsas de fertilizantes para abonar su cafetal y además pagará a los jornaleros quienes apoyarán en la limpieza de la mala hierba.
