Lourdes's story

Lourdes, 33 years old, lives with Teofilo, who is also 33 years old. They have four children. They live together in their own house located in the community of Periavente Alta in the Llochegua district. Lourdes is a woman who perseveres. She works very hard to try to improve the lives of her young children.

She works cultivating coffee and cacao along with her husband. At the beginning, they only had coffee plants, but they saw that cacao was also profitable, so they decided to buy cacao seeds, which are now bearing fruit and earning more income for them. Lourdes is happy with the crops that they have because thanks to them they have been able to obtain many benefits and give their family well-being.

This will be her second loan with MFP and she promises to make all of her payments on time. Lourdes is happy with her community bank because they are all punctual.

With the 3,000 nuevos soles that she is requesting, she will hire laborers to tend her cacao and coffee crops.
