Antonia's story

Antonia is 42 years old and is a humble and hardworking woman. She lives in her own home with her husband, Leandro who is 46 years old, and their 5 loving children to whom she wishes to give a better quality of life. Antonia is a woman who works very hard as she tills the land to later plant her cocoa crops, work that she has done for over 27 years. During the harvest season, Antonia along with her husband, children and day laborers’ remove the fruits quickly and sell them to markets in the area. It is difficult to carry out the work in the small farm since she is tired by all the hard work. This is why she wants a loan from MFP, to open a small grocery store where she can take care of the people in the neighboring area. This will be her fourth loan with MFP and is very happy to know that she will be able to count on the financial support and continue following her dreams. Antonia is committed to paying her loan quotas on time so that she will be able have access to another in the future. With the 3,000 nuevos soles, Antonia will buy sacks of rice, sugar, preserves, spaghettis, and other items to start her new store.
