Agustina's story

Agustina is 33 years old and she is married to Javier, 33 years old. The fruit of their relationship is their 2 children. They live together in a house of their own located in the community of Teresa in the district of Pichari. Her only objective is "to move forward". Since she was very young she had to work very much to help her parents with the family expenses. She sold products that her parents harvested and she earned her first wages. Today she has a plot of farm land where she plants cocoa. She is thankful to her parents for their support and for the knowledge they shared with her. She is not satisfied so she aspires to acquire another plot of farm land to be able to extend her cocoa plantation. She currently enjoys the support of her beloved husband and that of her children. She starts her days very early in the morning to go to the fields and to take care of the cocoa plants. Agustina is proud of the businesses she has. She enjoys seeing her parcel of land when it's clean and free of insect plagues. This is how she ensures a good yield. This is her first loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and she hopes to have the support of each one of you. She is very happy with her communal bank because her colleagues are hardworking and accomplished. With the 1500 soles she requests she will purchase sacks of organic fertilizers to fertilize her farm land.
