Teodocia's story

Teodocia is a tenacious 43-year old woman. She has been living with her husband, Félix, for 22 years, and together they have seven children, three of which are minors and live with them in the house that she inherited from her parents. Thanks to her efforts and perseverance, she has been able to provide for her children. The oldest ones have followed their paths, but she still works hard and with great care for the future of her youngest kids.

She works in agriculture cultivating peas, corn and potatoes in her own fields. According to her, she has an average of two plots and sells retail at the market of Pampas city, where she goes once a week. On other days, she goes to the rain-forest, where she has banana plantations, and takes care of her son living there. However, given that she's an enterprising woman, she also breeds hens and sheep to sell them at a higher price, and sells candy at the town square to have an extra income for the house.

This is her fourth loan with MFP and she is very pleased to count on this financial support. She has always been compliant with her payments and likes to be part of her association, where all members are supportive and responsible. Teodocia plans to invest the requested money in the purchase of organic fertilizer to be scattered over her fields, as she plans to cultivate on large scale.
