Victoria
Victoria is 49 years old and has two sons who are 18 and 15 years old. Together, they live in a simple house they own, built in a native community in the central jungle.

She has been working in agriculture since she was young. Now she grows coffee in four plots and annattos in two. She prioritizes these products because she believes they are the most profitable. She also produces bananas and oranges, but the profits only help for some extras.

Due to her experience, she knows how and where to sell her production. She has contacts in some collection centers where she provides coffee and annattos immediately after the harvest. "I have no problems, it's been about six years with this routine and I do well", she says. Because she was doing well, three years ago she started to lease other lands to increase her production, and that's what she expects to keep doing in the next years.

This is her credit number seven with MFP. She is very loyal to the organization, so she is grateful for the help they have given her all these years. She is a member of the communal bank "Flor de Almendra" and she is happy to participate in a strong and responsible group.

Victoria will invest these 2,000 soles in buyin nursery coffee to replace the old plants, and she will also buy bags of fertilizer.

Ella se dedica a la agricultura desde joven, ahora cultiva café en cuatro parcelas y achiote en dos. Prioriza estos productos porque los considera más rentables, pues también produce plátano y naranjas, pero las ganancias de éstos la ayudan solo para algunos gastos extras. Por la experiencia que tiene ya sabe cómo y dónde vender su producción, tiene contactos en los centros de acopio, a quienes provee de café y achiote inmediatamente después de las cosechas. “No me hago problemas, ya llevo como 6 años con esta rutina y me va bien”, menciona. Como le iba bien, hace 3 años empezó a arrendar otras tierras para aumentar su producción, y es lo que piensa seguir haciendo en estos años.

Este es su crédito número 7 con MFP. Ella es muy fiel a la entidad, por eso está agradecida por la ayuda que le han dado en tantos años. Pertenece al banco comunal “Flor de Almendra” y se siente contenta de participar en un grupo sólido y responsable.
