Zenaida's story

Zenaida, 42, is a hardworking woman. She lives in her own house with her partner Mario, 50, and her four beloved children, who are the reason for all her efforts.

In Zenaida's life, her beloved town of Santa Rosa is a very pleasant place to work. From the time she was little her parents taught her to work hard, and now she has her own land on which, with a lot of care and sacrifice, she grows cacao and barbasco [a native plant]. What she likes most about her job is harvesting her land because in that way she feels that after the hard work she has the work of selling her products. She has been doing this work for 10 years and she considers that the hardest part is not being able to fight the menace of insects that could affect her production.

In the future Zenaida will buy manure and fertilizer to take the necessary care of her crops and in this way not affect her production.

This will be her eighth loan with MFP, for which she hopes for your collaboration so she can realize her work plans. She is very happy in her communal bank because they are supportive and responsible.

With the 1,500 PEN she will buy manure and fertilizer to care for her crops.
