Felicitas's story

Faustina is 28 years old and her partner is Marcelino, 34, with whom she has two children. The house they live in is their own, having bought it together with the fruits of their labor. She is a farmer, dedicated to growing cacao and coffee. She has been carrying out this activity for 9 years, and now counts on the experience necessary to attain a good level of production. She considers the most difficult aspect of her work to be transporting her crops to the city where better prices are offered. In the future, she hopes to buy more land in order to increase her crops. This is her 6th credit with MFP. She has been very punctual with her previous loans, and hopes to be so again this time. She is very well liked by the other members of her cooperative bank due to her friendly character. With the 4,000 Peruvian soles from this loan, she will buy chemical fertilizers for her crops and also hire laborers to help her with the work.
