Natalia
Natalia is 49 years old and shares her married life with Julio who is 55. They have been together for a considerable length of time, and their loving relationship has produced 4 children: Alfredo, Reyna, Edwin and Ruth. Their home was built using quality construction materials.

She is a tireless worker and puts a lot of effort and dedication into her work caring for and producing cacao. She has been doing this kind of work for 20 years on plots of land that she acquired in the days after their wedding. As many people know, working in the fields is both arduous and exhausting. For this reason, on more than one occasion it has been necessary to get additional support and help from local labourers. With their assistance unfinished tasks can be completed quickly. This can result in a higher quality harvest by the end of the season due to the attention given to the crop. She believes that this makes sense because when she sells her goods to the local middlemen she can make good earnings. This in turn helps stabilise her family’s economic situation.

Following the technical studies carried out by the institution expert in the field, she noticed that her plots of land did not offer the shade required in order for the cacao plants to develop strong pods. For this reason she must plant trees immediately that will give temporary shade and grow quickly, such as the banana tree. This is why she must take on extra staff, to support her and her husband with this task. She must also weed the plots, as the weeds compete with the crops for nutrients, and carry out other crop maintenance work.

In the future she plans to buy land in the city and to build a house there for her children. They are school age now and she thinks it is good to give them a quality education which would only be available in the urban part of her area. This will be her fourth loan. It can be said that she has had great peace of mind since she joined MFP as there is money available to invest in her land and that helps her work run smoothly. She hopes that her group will always be united and keep its responsible attitude.

With the 2,000 Nuevos Soles she will buy tools and tree seeds to provide temporary shade for her fields, as well as pay the labourers for their work on different weeding and pruning tasks.

Natalia de 49 años comparte una vida conyugal con Julio de 55 años, ambos comparten un tiempo considerable juntos teniendo como fruto del amor a sus 4 hijos: Alfredo, Reyna, Edwin y Ruth. Radican en una vivienda construida a base de material noble. Es una mujer de arduo trabajo y esfuerzo dedicada al mantenimiento y producción de cacao, lleva 20 años desempeñándose como tal en unas parcelas que adquirió días después de haber contraído matrimonio. Como es de saberse las actividades en el campo son muy arduas y agotadoras, es por ello que en mas de una ocasión es necesario contar con apoyo y mano de obra adicional por parte de los jornaleros del lugar ya que el culminar en un periodo breve con las tareas pendientes aportan a favor de lograr a fin de temporada frutos de calidad debido a la atención prestada del caso. Considera que todo ello tiene sentido puesto que al realizar el expendio a los acopiadores del lugar es posible obtener buenas ganancias que en lo posterior ayudan a mantener la economía familiar de manera estable.
De acuerdo a los estudios técnicos brindados por una institución del rubro vio en sus parcelas cierto déficit con respecto a las sombras que requieren las plantaciones de cacao para desarrollar las mazorcas de manera estable, es por ello que requiere de inmediato instalar plantaciones de árboles de sombra temporal y rápido crecimiento como es el plátano, para ello requiere contar con personal que apoyen a ella y su esposo en la respectiva tarea , adicional a ello debe realizar un mantenimiento y el deshierbo de la maleza que compiten por los nutrientes. Tiene en mente realizar a futuro la compra de un lote de terreno en la ciudad y construir una vivienda para beneficio de sus hijos, pues ya se encuentran en edad escolar y considera es bueno brindarles una educación de calidad que solo se halla en la zona urbana de su localidad. Este viene a ser su crédito número cuatro, es posible decir que desde que inició a ser parte de MFP ha tenido cierta tranquilidad en cuanto a inversión inmediata en sus parcelas pues considera una gran ayuda para un trabajo fluido. Espera que su grupo comunal sea siempre un grupo unido y con orientación responsable.
Con los 2,000 nuevos soles realizará la compra de herramientas y semillas de árboles para sombra temporal de sus sembríos así como el pago de jornaleros para las distintas tareas de deshierbo y deschuponado de sus plantaciones.
