Sonia's story

Sonia is a hardworking woman who is 28 years old. She lives with Severino who is 36 years old. They live in their own home together with their four small children who are their inspiration of their efforts. Sonia work is growing coca leaves on land they bought with much sacrifice. She works the lands with the help of her partner and the laborers they contract in order to have all the help in this hard work, such as pulling weeks and harvesting the crops. What she likes best about her work is the freedom she has in the carrying out of her work, as it is best for the crops. She has been doing this work for ten years and what she considers to be most difficult is fighting the swarms of insects that attack her leaves. This will be her second loan with MPF and she is very happy to know that she has the support of all of you as this will make her feel safe moving forward in her work. With this loan she will buy cocoa and coffee plants and with the rest she will contract laborers in order to purge the plantations and thus avoid being harmed by the insects.
