Marcelina
Marcelina is 43 years old. She is a very hard-working and friendly woman. She bought her house together with her husband, Raul, of 44 years of age. She now lives there with her four children who are still of school age.

She earns her living through agriculture and spends most of her time on her plot of land pulling out the weeds which impede her plants from growing. She grows coffee, cocoa and citrus fruits (oranges, mandarins and tangelos). She has been carrying out this work on her land for 22 years and  does so with the support of her husband, who is the person who helps her in her everyday work to try to help achieve a better quality of life  for their household. During harvest time they always have the help of day-workers who who help them finish picking the fruits quickly. Often they take them to sell at the collection centers in her community, which pay a very good price according to the quality of the product.

This is her first loan with MFP and she is happy that she has this financial support, and for this reason she promises to be punctual with the repayments so that she can obtain further loans in the future. With the 2,000 nuevos soles she will buy natural fertilizers (organic manure) for her crops.
