Julia's story

Julia, is a very patient woman, who at 33 years old has a cozy, wood house where she lives with her husband and 4 children. What Julia likes to do most is dig up the land to plant cacao, an activity which she knows well. Every morning of the week, after making breakfast, she heads to her crop fields. For 30 years, she has been selling cacao pods to the warehouses in her area. She works with her husband and children, who are all trying hard to get ahead.

She is happy with her work and grateful to her parents for having taught her because it is now her source of income. On the other hand, her great wish is to build a house of decent materials. This will be her 3rd loan cycle with MFP. Her obligation is to continue being a responsible client because she would like to count on future loans. She also gets along with the other loan members, whom she admires a lot.

With 3,000 nuevos soles, she will purchase cement, sand, iron rods, and other necessary supplies to move forward with the construction of her house.
