Yoliza's story

Yoliza is a 24-year-old young mother. Thanks to her effort she managed to buy her own house, where she lives with her three-year-old son Francesco, who is the motivation for all her effort.

She works the land to grow cacao plants. She has done this work for four years and she guarantees that it is going very well for her. To maintain her plots of land and during the harvest she has the help of day laborers who are familiar with her land. Yoliza takes her harvests to sell at the distribution centers of her town, where they give her good profits per kilo. Her priority is to be able to maintain all her plants so they always produce well.

Since she found out about the loans that MFP gives, she did not hesitate to inform herself about continuing to develop her plans. This is her first loan and she is grateful for the opportunity it gives her. For her part, she promises to be punctual in making her payments. Also, she is grateful to her communal bank for working with responsible people.

With the 1,000 nuevos soles (PEN) that she is requesting she will buy bags of fertilizer to fertilize her fields.
