A loan of $950 helped hire farm workers.

Felicitas's story

Felicitas is 36 years old. She is married to Fortunato who is 41 years old. They have five children. The family lives in their own house located in the community of Periavente Alta in the Llochegua district.
Felicitas is consistent with her objectives. She works in agriculture in Periavente Alta. She grows cacao with her loving husband and some contracted farm workers. She started doing this kind of work when she was very young. Her parents taught her how to grow coffee. Since then, she has liked working in the fields. For that reason, she is now putting this into practice with her own activity. Generally, she sells her product in the Llochegua district because there they pay a good price. In the future, she is thinking about continuing to expand her cacao plantations. This will be her second loan with MFP. She promises once again to make her payments on time.
With the 2,500 nuevos soles, she will hire farm workers to do maintenance on her cacao plot.
