A loan of $750 helped to hire day laborers.

Honorata's story

Honorata is 44 years old. She’s married and has 4 children under her care. They live together in her house, located in the city of Santa Rosa. She cultivates cacao, coffee, and barbasco root (a native plant). These products have a high demand in the market. Thanks to this, she has been able to financially sustain her family and cover her children’s educational costs.

Every morning, she takes care of her plants to have a high-quality crop. She has been farming for 20 years and considers it very difficult to carry her crop to the city of San Francisco, where she sells her produce. In the future, she hopes to sow more cacao plants, since she has more land that could be farmed.

This will be Honorata’s eighth credit with Microfinanzas Prisma (MFP) and she confirms that she will pay her installments. She will use the 2,000 Peruvian soles to hire day laborers to help her remove the weeds from her plants and with the harvest.
