Zenayda
Zenayda is 22 years old and is a single young woman who lives with her parents in her native community in the central jungle.
Zenayda is a hardworking and enterprising young woman who wants to save up enough to be able to go to school and pay her own tuition. This is her motivation for farming.

As a girl she was taught not to settle for things and that there are always reasons for continuing to work and being entrepreneurial. Her parents provided two plots of farmland where she raises coffee and bananas. At first her parents and brothers helped her with the planting and harvests, but when she started making money she hired field hands.

“I learned to be independent, thanks to my parents, and things are going well for me with my crops, because they always give me advice,” she says.
She sells her harvest in the central market and she must hire vehicles and pay freight costs, but the investment is worth it because her income is considerable, especially for coffee sales.

This will be her second loan through MFP and she is committed to being on time with her monthly payments. Her communal bank is called “Los Productores Yaneshas” and she likes the teamwork.
She will use the money to pay for field hands who will clean up her fields.

Zenayda tiene 22 años, es una joven soltera y vive con sus padres en una comunidad nativa en la selva central.
Zenayda es una joven entusiasta y empeñosa. Su intención de ahorrar lo suficiente para poder estudiar y pagarse los estudios, la motiva a desempeñarse en la agricultura.
De niña la formaron en no conformarse con lo que tiene, siempre hay motivos para seguir trabajando y emprender. Sus padres le otorgaron 2 lotes de terrenos donde cultiva café y plátanos. Al inicio sus padres y hermanos la apoyaron en la plantación y cosechas, pero cuando empezó a cosechar y a obtener dinero por su cuenta, se encargó de contratar personal.
“Aprendí a ser independiente gracias a mis padres, y me va bien en mis cultivos, porque siempre me asesoran”, comenta contenta.
Negocia sus cosechas en el mercado central, para ello debe contratar vehículos y pagar el servicio de flete. Aun así le conviene la inversión, porque sus ingresos son considerables, especialmente con la venta de café.
Éste es su préstamo número 2 con MFP, por eso se responsabiliza de ser puntual en el pago de las cuotas mensuales. Su banco comunal se llama “Los Productores Yaneshas” y le agrada el trabajo en equipo.
Con el dinero podrá pagar a los jornaleros que contratará para la limpieza de su cafetal.
