Yuli is a young woman of 20. She lives in her parents' house together with her partner Elmer, 24, and her little daughter Ariana, 1. Since she was very young, Yuli knew how to cultivate the plants that grow in her region. Because of this she works cultivating cacao and coca on the land that her parents gave her. Now, together with her partner, she works at the care and production of her plantings. At harvest time she has the help of day laborers who help in the extraction of the harvest. She has been doing this work on her own land for three years.

Her greatest wish is to be able to finish building her house where they can live peacefully and to give a good future to her little girl.

This is her first loan from MFP. She promises to be punctual in her payments because in this way she will be able to get another loan. She also thanks her communal bank for letting her be a member of the group. With this loan and the income from her work she will be able to finish the construction of her home.
