Honorata's story

Honorata is 24 years old. She is an enthusiastic and hardworking woman who lives with her partner Richard, 26 years old, and her beloved daughter Samerli who is 5 years old. She had her daughter at an early age and, on realizing the need for a home, she decided to join her partner in his routine agricultural tasks; since then they have worked together to overcome poverty. This is why she goes out to work her land every day, planting cocoa, coffee and coca leaf, products that once harvested are taken to be sold to different companies that make chocolates and toothpaste. What she likes the best about her work is the freedom and the working hours as she can freely enjoy her green fields. She has been doing this work for 5 years and believes that the hardest part of the job is protecting their crops from insect pests that damage the plants. This will be her 9th loan with MFP and hopes with this small loan to be able to continue growing and as such is willling to make the repayments necessary on her loan. The loan will be very useful as with it she will buy several bags in which to store her products and later plans to buy new land.
