Frine
At 33 years of age, Frine is proud to belong to a caring family with a strong sense of responsibility towards their work. Her partner, Marcelino, and her two young children, Frank and Katerin, are great motivation. Thanks to their work, together they have been able to build the first floor of their home.

She is very hardworking and so decided to work in farming, specifically growing organic cacao. For this activity she uses some plots of land that she inherited from her parents. They had decided to stop due to old age, but until that time it had sustained her family for many years.

She has been farming this land for 6 years, supported by Marcelino. All her time is spent looking after the cocoa trees. She likes working in the fields as it is very rewarding work with no problems or complications, dependant largely on the effort put in. The benefits of producing good quality cacao pods can be appreciated in the final price offered by the dealers.

It is now the cacao growing season and so the plots must be weeded for the second time. As this task is quite complicated and laborious, help, in the form of short-term labourers, will be needed.

Her plans for the future include the construction of the second floor of her home, which would be good for her kids. All that she earns from her work is used for her children.

With the 2,000 Nuevos Soles that she is requesting she will add to her existing capital to pay for the second weeding of the season with the help of local labourers. In addition to this, she will buy some bags of manure (guano).

Con 33 años de edad Frine tiene el orgullo de pertenecer a una familia muy cariñosa y de amplia responsabilidad laboral, junto a Marcelino su pareja y sus dos retoños Frank y Katerin siente que tiene una motivación envidiable. Gracias a su trabajo en conjunto ha logrado construir el primer piso de su vivienda.
Muy trabajadora optó por dedicarse a las actividades agrícolas consistentes en la producción de cacao orgánico gracias a las parcelas que recibió por parte de sus padres en calidad de herencia, pues al encontrarse ya mayores optaron por abandonar la actividad que por muchos años fue el sustento de su familia.
Lleva 6 años a cargo de dichas parcelas y con el apoyo de Marcelino viene dedicándose de lleno al mantenimiento periódico de los árboles cacaoteros. Le agrada desempeñarse en el campo puesto que es una labor abnegada fuera de problemas y complicaciones dependiendo mucho del esfuerzo que uno le aplique, ya que el obtener buenas mazorcas termina siendo beneficioso en cuanto al precio final que los acopiadores le otorgan.
Al encontrarse en medio de la campaña productiva de cacao es necesario realizar un segundo deshierbo periódico, puesto que será necesario contar con la mano de obra por parte de jornaleros por tratarse de una actividad algo complicada y trabajosa.
Sus planes a futuro apuntan a la construcción del segundo piso de su vivienda en beneficio de sus retoños a quienes dedica todo el resultado de su trabajo. Con los 2,000 nuevos soles que solicita, complementará su capital para el segundo deshierbo de campaña que requieren sus plantaciones con ayuda de jornaleros del lugar, adicional a ello comprará algunos sacos de abono guano de aves.
