Cirila's story

Cirila is a 38-year-old single workingwoman who lives in her own house together with her 4 children and she wants to give them a better quality of life. From a very early age they taught Cirila about the cultivation of plants on the farm. Now she works with her own crops in order to get ahead and she’s been growing cacao for 30 years and it is one of the best beans you can offer. Despite being a woman, she knows she has to work hard and spend time with her crops, it’s not difficult, and her only purpose is to be able to meet the household expenses.

In the future she hopes to improve her farm buying supplies such as fertilizer and compost. This will be her 4th loan with MFP and she is grateful for the financial help, so she can continue her work. She gets along well with everyone in her communal bank and they share work experiences. With this loan she will buy bags of fertilizer and compost.
