Rufina's story

Rufina is 32 years old. She is an unpretentious and hard working woman. She lives in her own home together with her 3 beloved children, to whom she wishes to provide a better future. Rufina's cultivations are the best cared-for fields in the village. Her bananas and coffee are of excellent quality especially because she has always been able to provide enough fertilizer to her fields. In the La Merced markets is where her products are in highest demand and where they are sold at the best prices. What she likes best about her work is fertilizing the fields and protecting them against insect pests. In time she hopes to improve her harvests and to improve her earnings. This is her fourth loan through MFP (Kiva Field Partner). She has always been very punctual with her payments, especially because she feels a great responsibility towards the institution. In her community group she is a very dedicated member always looking for the development of the group at large. With the two thousand nuevos soles she requests he will purchase more fertilizers for her fields, so that they always remain well supplied.
