Juana
Juana, 51, is a widow but thanks to her late husband and her work they managed to buy the house she now lives in with her two children who support her all the time.

Her activities are growing coffee and cocoa beans. She owns land that she bought with much effort. She tills the land with help from her children and day laborers who do the weeding, harvesting and transporting the gathered beans to the highway to be transported by truck. What she enjoys most about her work is the freedom it gives her since she decides what’s best for her crops. She’s been doing this work for 28 years and considers the most difficult part having to combat the pests that take hold of the buds.

This is her fifth MFP loan and she knows that she must be punctual with her payments if she wants to have access to future loans. She feels very happy to be a member of her communal bank and gives of herself for her group’s development.

She will use the 4000 new soles to buy manure and cocoa bean plant grafts.

Juana tiene 51 años, es viuda, pero gracias a su difunto esposo y a su trabajo, lograron comprar la casa donde ahora habita junto a sus dos hijos, quienes la apoyan en todo momento.
Su actividad es el cultivo de café y cacao. Cuentas con tierras propias que compró con sus esfuerzos. Ella labra sus tierras con el apoyo de sus hijos y de los jornaleros quienes realizan la extracción de malezas, la cosecha y el traslado de los productos recolectados hasta la carretera para luego ser trasladados con una moto carga. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es la libertad que tiene, ya que ella decide qué es lo mejor para sus cultivos. Lleva 28 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil es combatir con las plagas que se apoderan de los brotes de sus cultivos.

Este es su crédito número 5 con MFP y sabe que tiene que ser puntual en sus pagos, si desea acceder a otro crédito posteriormente. Se siente muy contenta por ser socia de su banco comunal y aporta de sí misma por el desarrollo de su grupo.
Con los 4,000 nuevos soles de este préstamo hará la compra de abono e injertos de cacao.
