Marcelina's story

Marcelina is 20 years old. She is a very happy and unpretentious young woman. She lives in her own home together with her husband Michael, 30 years old, and their two beloved children, to whom she strives to provide a better quality of life. Marcelina's work is cultivating bananas and coffee. Every day since very early in the morning she works in her fields, knowing this is the way to obtain the best earnings for her harvest. What she likes best about her work is harvest the fruits of her labor, receiving her rewards for all the efforts she invested in her fields. In the future she hopes to have more land, to increase her yield. This is her third loan through MFP (Kiva Field Partner). She indicates that this loan will help her a great deal in the progress of her business. She is very well liked in her community bank group, being very close to them. The one thousand five hundred nuevos soles she requests will be used to purchase fertilizers to improve the productivity of the harvest.
