Rosaura
Rosaura, 41, is an enterprising woman married to Juan, 46. They have five children two of which are adults and live independent, responsible lives thanks to the good way they were raised. She lives in a house built with substantial materials that she managed to build little by little with support from her entire family.

Ten years ago she discovered that cocoa beans were a good source of family income which is why she continues growing them with the firm support of her husband who sometimes gathers his children together to help with the lesser chores. The process she likes best is harvesting because that’s very entertaining as opposed to weeding which she considers to be tedious men’s work.

Her priority is to acquire plants to graft in order to replace spent plants and not have obsolete land during the next growing season as well as to acquire organic manure that will guarantee the quality crop consolidators seek and pay good prices for.

Among her plans is to buy additional land to expand production because the zone she works in is very fertile and good harvests are a sure thing. Having attained her 6th MFP loan allows her to continue producing fluidly. She thanks her communal bank fellow members for the way they behave with respect to installment payments. She will use the 2,000 soles to pay laborers and to buy plants to graft which are currently well-priced due to the season as well as to buy sacks of organic manure.

Rosaura de 41 años, una mujer emprendedora casada con Juan de 46 años tienen consigo a 5 hijos, 2 de los cuales mayores llevan una vida independiente y responsable gracias a la buena formación que les inculco. Habita una casa de material noble que logro construir de a pocos con el apoyo de toda su familia. Desde hace 10 años halló en el cacao una buena fuente de ingreso para su familia, es por ello que lo sigue desempeñando con el firme apoyo de su esposo quien en ocasiones convoca a sus hijos para apoyar en labores menores. El proceso que mas le agrada es la cosecha ya que la entretiene mucho a diferencia del deshierbo debido a que considera es trabajo de hombres y engorroso a su vez.
Sus prioridades apuntan una necesidad de adquirir plantas de injerto para reemplazar plantaciones desfasadas evitando tener terreno obsoleto en temporada próxima de producción. Asimismo adquirir abono orgánico el cual garantice obtener la calidad que los acopiadores suelen cotizar a buen precio.
Dentro de sus planes desea adquirir parcelas para expandir su producción debido a que la zona donde se desempeña es terreno muy fértil y garantiza una buena producción. El haber logrado su crédito número 06 con MFP, le permite a ella seguir produciendo con fluidez. Agradece también a sus compañeros de su banco comunal por como se desempeñan con el tema del cumplimiento para el pago de sus cuotas.
Los 2,000 soles los destinará al pago de jornaleros y compra de plantas para injerto cuyo precio esta en oferta debido al inicio de temporada, así como los sacos de abono orgánico.
