Lucy
Lucy is 30 years old and a single mother. She has one child who is 9 years old, who she cares for lovingly. The live in a house made of rustic material, but it is her own. Lucy is an exemplary mother. All of her efforts are for the good of her family, especially for her young son. She is involved in agriculture and grows coffee. "I have three pieces of land where I just grow coffee," she said.

In addition, she varies her production with the cultivation of yucca, plantains, and citrus. The resulting profit from each planting is enough to acquire seeds and organic fertilizers, and she says that her crops have been larger and larger because of her increasing profits. She says that the primary problem is the lack of working capital to have better production, but she is doing it slowly.

These months are the time when she is busiest working on her coffee care, cleaning and trimming, and spreading fertilizers, but what she can do is not enough, and therefore, she is asking for your support.

One of her goals is to become a large scale agriculturalist, for which she works with dedication. This is her fourth loan with MFP. She promises to pay her loan back punctually, just as with her previous loans. “Los Clavelitos de Shankivironi” is the name of her communal banking group, and she feels happy to work with these responsible group members. With this money, she will be able to acquire bags of organic fertilizers for her coffee crops and some for the yucca as well.

Lucy de 30 años es una madre soltera. Tiene un hijo de 9 años a quien cuida con amor. Ellos viven en una casa de material rústico pero de su propiedad. Lucy es una madre ejemplar. Todo su esfuerzo es por el bienestar de su familia, en especial de su pequeño hijo. Se dedica a la agricultura con el sembrío de café. “tengo 3 parcelas de terrenos donde cultivo solo café”, menciona. Además varía su producción con el cultivo de yucas, plátanos y algo de cítricos. La inversión que realiza en cada siembra, le permite adquirir semillas y bolsas de abono orgánico, pero admite que sus cultivos fueron aumentando poco a poco de acuerdo a sus ganancias. Ella considera que el principal problema es la falta de capital para tener mayor producción, pero lo hace paulatinamente.
Estos meses se va esforzando en los cuidados de su cafetal, con la limpieza y con fertilizantes que esparce, pero no es suficiente, por ello solicita de su apoyo.
Una de sus metas es ser una agricultora mayorista, para ello trabaja con dedicación. Éste es su préstamo número 4 con MFP. Se compromete en pagar las cuotas con puntualidad, como en los créditos anteriores. “Los Clavelitos de Shankivironi”, es el nombre de su banco comunal y se siente a gusto trabajando con socios responsables. Con el dinero podrá adquirir bolsas de abono orgánico para sus cultivos de café y una parte para las yucas.
