Rocio's story

Rocio is a 26-year-old single mother who lives in her parents' house with her only son Frank, aged 9, for whom she wishes to provide a better quality of life. Rocio is a very hard-working woman who 3 years ago began selling fruit she produced on the farm of her parents', who provided this help so she could get ahead and educate her child in a normal way.

Rocio tells us that it is the season for fruits, such as mango, pineapple, and plantain, among others. She takes them to sell in the city of Ayacucho, where customers are very satisfied with the fruit she brings. This is because the fruit produced in the fields around Rosario are so delicious.

What Rocio likes most about her work is being able to cover her son's expenses. She thinks the most difficult part is having to travel and leave her son behind. In time, Rocio hopes to plant mO. fruit seeds in order to take a larger quantity to the city of Ayacucho, where her principal customers are located.

This is Rocio's 3rd loan through MFP and she promises to comply with her schedule of payments. She is also very fond of her communal bank, since everyone complies with their commitments to repay. With the 2,000 new sols she is requesting, Rocio will purchase fruit seeds, including mango, orange and plantain, among others, to sow on the farm.
