Yaneth's story

Yaneth A. is 27 years old and from San Francisco district. She lives with her partner, 45 year-old Jesús Laureano, in their own home in Carmen Pampa neighborhood, in San Francisco district. They have 2 children: 9 year old Franklin and 6 year-old Joseph.

Through a lot of hard work, Yaneth and her husband have managed to work their land to make it more productive. Yaneth is a farmer who grows cacao and coffee, which are sustainable products for her personal finances. At harvest time, Yaneth has to hire laborers to harvest her crops. She has been farming for eight years and acknowledges that the work is very profitable. For this reason, she pays a lot of attention to her crops. However, when she needs to transport her crops from the farm to the city of San Franciso, it is very complicated. Regardless, she knows that every sacrifice has its reward. In the future, she would like to buy new land to increase her crop production.

This is Yaneth's fourth loan from MFP. She has been very punctual in paying back her previous loans and she hopes to keep this up. She is a very well-liked member of her community bank. Yaneth will use her 3,000 Peruvian soles to hire laborers to weed her land and she will also buy coffee and cacao seeds.
