Paulina's story

Paulina is 55 years old. She is a hardworking woman. She lives in her own house along with her husband, Cirilo, who is 63 years old, and her 4 beloved children. What she wants the most is to offer them a better quality of life. This is why she is dedicated to working very hard. Every day, starting very early, Paulina works her lands. For her, holidays do not exist. She has to continually work her small farm in order to have a good product. In this way, she will be able to offer a better future to her children. Her main product that she plants is coffee, which she sells at a good price in the city of San Francisco. What she likes the most about her job is the freedom that she has working on her crops, since she can enjoy their green fields freely. She has been doing this activity for 34 years, and she thinks that the most difficult part of the job is taking care of the crops when they are plagued by insects that afflict her plants. In the future, she plans to buy new lands in order to increase the crop. This will be her 14th loan with MFP. She has been very punctual in the payment of her dues, and she hopes to do now also. With the 3,000 nuevos soles, she will buy more coffee seeds to be cultivated later and make a good profit from their fruits.
