A loan of $775 helped to buy fertilizers for her cocoa and coffee plants.


Catalina's story

Catalina is 38 years old. Her husband is Paulino, of 37 years of age. She has four children. They have their own house which they bought thanks to their hard work.

For sixteen years she has been earning her living through agriculture. She works with her husband and oldest son, but during the harvest season they hire day workers, since this allows them to quickly finish collecting the fruits. 
She enjoys carrying out this work, since each year her crops are improving in quantity and quality. 

Nevertheless, they have difficulties in fighting the plagues that damage their crops. For this reason they rely on loans from MFP.

This is her ninth loan and she is happy she is being offered this opportunity and promises to make repayments punctually. With these 2,000 nuevos soles she will buy fertilizers for her cocoa and coffee plants.
