Graciela's story

Graciela is 43 years old. She is a happy and responsible woman. She lives in her own house with her husband Joel (39) and her four darling children. She hopes to provide a wonderful future for her children. Every day, from very early in the morning, Graciela begins caring for her land. She knows that she will get more money for her seedlings if they are high quality. She brings her plants to sell at the wholesale market in the city of Tarma, where she will get the best prices. What she likes best about her work is growing her plants. She has been doing this for twenty years. What is the most difficult about her job is transporting her plants. With time she would like to have a sales booth in the wholesale market. This is her first loan with MFP. She feels that the support is very beneficial. Little by little she will improve her life. She is a very responsible member of her community group. She is always punctual with her payments. With this loan of 1,000 new soles that she is requesting, she will buy pea seed, as there is much demand for this plant.
