Roberta is 45 years old and happily married to Mauricio. Together they have seven children and they all live in a house made from adobe. She loves the country and has spent 25 years cultivating coffee. She plants her crops on land inherited from her parents and they have used this to help their family get ahead. Mauricio, her right hand, is always consistent with his work and indicated that without teamwork they would not have been able to succeed. One of the things that fascinates Roberta is that harvesting the grains pleases and relaxes her, so in consequence, she is faster than the hired day laborers. Nevertheless, hard work like moving the sacks leaves her exhausted.

In order to continue producing, she needs to acquire coffee seeds as well as organic fertilizer to guarantee a quality crop. She hopes to continue saving so that she can later open a grocery store. This is her 17th loan and she remains committed to working with MFP, so she will make her payments on time. She thanks her fellow community bank members ahead of time for their welcome and the motivation they provide. With the 3,000 soles requested she plans to purchase coffee seeds and organic fertilizer and to hire day laborers for the first phase of production.
