A loan of $975 helped buy cocoa grafts.

Clementina's story

Clementina is 35 years old, single, but has four children. She owns her house which she managed to buy through hard work and effort. She works on the land growing cocoa, coca leaves, and coffee, a job she’s been doing for 20 years. Her biggest problem is the insects which eat her crops. Clementina’s greatest wish for the future is to save enough money to buy new land and increase production.

This is her sixth loan with MFP. She knows that she is responsible for paying back the money on time and is happy to do this. In her community bank she is always welcoming to everyone who goes there because she is a very active member.

With the 2,500 soles, Clementina plans to buy cocoa grafts so she can continue growing cocoa on her land.
