A loan of $400 helped to purchase sacks of fertilizer.


Faustina's story

Faustina, 30 years old, lives in her own house with her partner and three dear children, for whom she wants a good life. She is a good woman who is dedicated to her work in the fields, where she carefully cultivates coffee, a crop her family depends on. What she most likes about her work is being able to engage in it with her husband and children, who motivate her to continue going forward toward the harvest. At the same time, she considers clearing the chaparral, which grows in the midst of the coffee plants in her fields, difficult to deal with. So far, Faustina has received loans from MFP because they support the way she works in her fields. This is loan number four and she will be very responsible, as always. She is also satisfied with the work done by her communal bank because they are responsible people. With the S/. 1,000, she will purchase fertilizer to take care of her coffee plantation.
