Zenobia's story

Zenobia is 46 years old and is married to Sergio. They have four children. They live in their own house located in the community of Periavente Alta, in the district of Llochegua. Zenobia is a woman who is very talented in household duties as well as in work, where she grows coffee on her parcel of land located an hour from her house. She tells us furthermore that to advance in her work she goes to live on her agricultural parcel with all her family, because it is tiring to go up there every day. For this reason, she does her shopping on Sundays for the week, and then she heads to work early in the morning on Mondays, then returning to her house on Saturday afternoons after work. In this way Zenobia works with the sole goal of advancing. In the near future she wants to open a grocery store, but her house is still not furnished. For that reason, she wants to put a floor in her house.

She is happy with the work that she does, because up to now it has gone very well for her. This is her second loan with MFP, so she promises to make her payments punctually.

With the 1500 PEN, she will invest in the planting of more fields of coffee, and for that she will buy seeds and compost.
