Zoila
Zoila is 59 years old. She is a joyful, kind, and very enthusiastic woman. She is separated and is the mother of five children, only one of which still lives with her and depends on her for his education and sustenance. She lives with her minor son in her own home, which she was able to purchase through her effort and sacrifice.

Zoila's work starts when she goes to the fields early in the day. She tends to the crops, waters, and prepares the land for planting. She also produces honey and regional products. She owns her own farmland and has been working now for over thirty years, approximately. Her work allowed her to feed and educate her children, and provide them with a good quality of life. She learned the trade when she was very young, since she inherited it from her parents. Now she is teaching her youngest child, who helps her after school and is learning about the family business.

What she likes about her work is that it allows her time to spend with her son. She makes good sales because the products she obtains from her land are very good. She takes her products to the wholesale market in the city of Pucallpa, where her buyers await her business. She expects to be able to maintain her business and start other types of crops in the future.

This will be her 18th loan through MFP, and she is requesting their cooperation in order to realize her plans. She is very happy knowing that she will have the financial support to continue increasing her working capital, and she is also convinced that she will continue to be the good and responsible member she has been throughout her previous loans. She enjoys belonging to the communal bank she works with because everyone is responsible and very supportive of each other.

She will use the requested amount of 2,500 soles to purchase grain and seeds and to pay some laborers to prepare her land for planting. She will also start her beekeeping.
