Celia's story

Celia is 39 years old and originally from the city of San Francisco. She lives in a house of her own together with her beloved husband, Javier, 42 years old, and their 3 beloved children. She wants to give them stability for a better future for the family. Celia is an arduous worker, started in the very early morning to prepare breakfast for the members of her family and later she sets out to the fields with her beloved husband. On their land they cultivate cocoa, coffee, and bananas. These are important products that help her to make ends meet and to educate her young children. During the harvest and when the fields need to be weeded she hires farm hands to help them advance faster in their scheduled tasks. She needs the support of the financial entity to help her carry out their scheduled activities. She plans on battling insect plagues that lurk in the fruit buds. She also needs to purchase fertilizers. She does not have sufficient resources which is why she accesses loans from MFP (Kiva Field Partner). This institution helps individuals of limited resources who wish to prosper. For the sake of her businesses, she hopes to have the same strength and impetus for which she is known, to advance production. This will be her second loan with MFP. She hopes to have your collaboration to be able to purchase the necessary products. She is compromised to make her payments according to the payment schedule, and she hopes to access other loans in the future. With the 2000 nuevos soles she requests, she will purchase materials and fertilizers she needs to combat insect plagues that attack the fruit of the cultivations.
