Margarita, 32, is a cheerful, hardworking woman living in her own house with her spouse, Fredy, 34 and their two beloved children who are the reasons behind all her efforts. Margarita works alongside her spouse with much dedication planting coffee, cocoa bean and pineapple plants. She’s been doing this work for 12 years. During harvest season they always hire day laborers to help bring in the harvest more quickly and easily. It’s then sold in the local gathering centers which pay good per kilogram prices. What she likes best about her work is harvesting because that’s when she sees the fruits of her hard work. What she considers to be most difficult is transporting the crops to the gathering centers; it’s a half-hour walk to the nearest means of transportation.

In time, she hopes to save enough money to buy new land and continue growing plants but for now her priority is finishing her house. This is her ninth loan and on this occasion she hopes to once again have support from lenders because thanks to them she’s gradually improving her living conditions. She will use the 2,000 new soles to buy cement and bricks.
