Betty
Betty is 37 years old. Together with her partner she has two children, aged 14 and 3. Her house is her own, and it is made from rustic materials.

She has worked in agriculture for 12 years, on lands that her community provided to her. She grows plantains, ginger, coffee and oranges. Just a year ago, she started harvesting coffee, and for that reason the production was not good this time, but next year her sales will be much better. In the meantime, she covers her main costs through the sale of oranges. Just this year she also started planting ginger, and she is sure that after harvesting it she will obtain good profits. "Now a kilo sells for 3 soles, but I hope it will rise," she notes. Her plans for now are to care for and maintain her crops and her upcoming corn planting.

This is her third loan with MFP, and thus she is committed to being punctual with her loan payments. She belongs to the “Unión Orito” communal bank, where she is one of the most cheerful and best-organized members.

This money will be invested in paying the workers who will clean up her fields, as well as buying corn seeds and fertilizers.
