Honorata's story

Honorata, 48, is from the city of Quimbiri. She is a hard-working woman who lives in her own house with her husband, Alejandro, 54, and their three minor children for whom they want to provide the best quality of life. Together with her husband, Honorata works every day on her land. With much effort she has been able to make her land more productive. She grows a little bit of everything and produces quality crops, the mains ones being cocoa and coffee since these command the highest price at market.

What she enjoys most about her work is caring for her crops against insect plagues since this would reduce profits. She has been in this trade for 20 years and feels the hardest part of it is transporting the crops to the city of San Francisco which is where she sells them. Since plagues are a menace to the crops, Honorata will use the loan to buy wire netting to combat the insects. She plans to care for all of her cropland in the same way to protect her future. This is her 17th loan through MFP and she is counting on lenders to help her meet her goal. She is committed to paying back the loan on time as she has done with previous loans. She is a very supportive member of her communal bank. With this 2,000 PEN loan she will buy wire netting to combat the insect plagues threatening her crops.
