Juliana's story

Juliana is 32 years old, she is a very happy and hard-working woman, she owns her home where she lives with her husband Guido. She wishes to improve her quality of life. She works harvesting bananas, pineapples, and coffee. She begins her days very early caring for her farm knowing that the more careful she is with her crops, the better product she will harvest. From her job, she likes planting the most and she does it with alot of patience. She has been doing it for 10 years and considers transporting her crops to the market in the city of La Merced, where she sells them, to be the most difficult. In time she hopes to purchase more land in order to increase her harvest. This is her third loan with MFP, she knows she has to be punctual with payments if she wants to obtain another loan in the future. She is a responsible member of her communal bank and it is the motive for being so respected by her partners. With her requested loan of 2,500 PEN ( 900 USD), she will purchase fertilizers for her crops and product to combat the plague.
