Rita
Rita is 39 years old and is a very hardworking woman. Her partner is Nerón, 44, with whom she has a son, Roy, 15, to whom she hopes to give a better future. She and Nerón produce cacao and coca leaves. They have been engaged in this work for 12 years and have their own land. What she most enjoys about her work is harvesting the fruit, because then she feels that the months of hard work have finally paid off. They contract laborers to help expedite the harvest. Nevertheless, the most difficult part is transporting their bags of crops from their small farm to the city where she markets them because it is located a half hour away and the bags are very heavy. Her other problem is not being able to depend on enough money to pay the workers in advance for their help with the harvest. Thus she has applied for loans.

This is Rita’s tenth loan from MFP and she knows this money will help her greatly in carrying out her work. In her communal bank, she is much loved by the other members. With the S/. 1,000 requested, she will purchase natural fertilizers for her cacao plants and coca leaves.

Rita tiene 39 años, es una mujer muy trabajadora, su pareja es Nerón, de 44 años, con quien tiene un hijo, Roy de 15 años, a quien desea brindar un mejor provenir.
Ella y Nerón se dedican a la producción de cacao y hoja de coca, esta labor la vienen realizando desde hace 12 años, contando con sus propios terrenos. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es cosechar los frutos, ya que así siente que los meses de arduo trabajo le brindan su recompensa, para esta labor contratan a peones para que les ayuden a agilizar el proceso. Sin embargo, considera que lo más difícil es transportar sus sacos de cosecha desde su chacra hasta la ciudad, donde las comercializa, ya que se ubica a media hora de distancia y son muy pesados. Su otra dificultad es no poder contar con suficiente dinero para solventar los pagos, por adelantado, a los jornaleros quienes le brindan el apoyo con las cosechas, es por ello que acude a los préstamos.

Este es su crédito número 10 con MFP y sabe que este dinero le ayudará mucho en el progreso de su trabajo. En su banco comunal es una socia muy querida por el resto de sus compañeros.
Con los 1,000 nuevos soles solicitados comprará fertilizantes naturales para sus plantas de cacao y hoja de coca.
