Juliana's story

Juliana is 48 years old. She is a very humble and hardworking woman. She lives in her own home with her husband Sergio, 47, and their 4 beloved children, to whom they want to offer a better quality of life. Together with her husband, Juliana works on her crops everyday. With much effort, she has been able to make her land very productive and now she plants everything, since she knows that any products she gets will be of good quality. She mainly plants cacao, coffee and coca leaves, since these products are very much in demand in the market in the city of San Francisco. What she likes the most about her job is protecting her crops from the insect pests that can hurt them. She has been doing this activity for 21 years and considers that the hardest thing is transporting her crops. For the future, she hopes to be able to buy more land to increase her present production. This is her fourth loan with MFP. She feels that this loan will help her a lot to develop her activity. In her communal bank, she is a very responsible member and she is very proud of that. The three thousand nuevos soles she has asked for will be invested in improving her crops. She will buy fertilizer for them.
