Teodora's story

Teodora, 36, lives in her own house with her common-law husband, Amador, 40, and her four beloved children for whom she tries to provide the best lifestyle possible. Teodora dedicates her hard work and much passion to her farming activity, especially to her coffee plantation which she and her husband care for every day in order to provide economic stability to the family. During the planting and harvest seasons she needs to hire workers for more efficiency. She sells her produce at competitive prices to the collection centers in the city of San Francisco. In the future she wants to build a more comfortable house for her family. This is her first loan through MFP and she is committed to paying it back on time. She is grateful to the communal bank for the confidence shown in her. She plans to use the 1,000 PEN to begin building her house.
