Presbiteria's story

Presbiteria is a native of Quimbiri. She is 39 years old and is a cheerful and hardworking woman who wants to succeed in life. She lives in her own house with her partner Roberto who is 57 years old and their 4 beloved children for whom they want to provide an adequate education. Presbiteria works with great care to make her cocoa, coffee, achiote (a Latin American fruit) and pepper plants stand out. After harvesting she takes the crops to the collection centres in the cities of Quimbiri and San Francisco to sell as she already has several buyers there who knowing the quality of her product do not hesitate to wait and buy her entire harvest. What she likes the most about her work is sowing her land, making it fertile and productive. She has been doing this job for 13 years and feels that it is very profitable as thanks to it she was able to improve the front of her house. In the future, she hopes to continue saving her income as she wants to buy more land. This is her first loan and she is very happy to know that she will have financial support as this will make her feel safe to buy what she is asking for and thrive thanks to your support. With the 2000 soles (PEN) she is asking for, she will buy curtains, traps and burners to combat the plague of insects that infect her crops.
