When I asked my financial calculator to compute the Present Value with the following information
  interest = 3%
  number of payments = 10
  payment = -4000
  future value = 0
it told me the present value is $34,120.81.

The interest period is the same as the payment period, so we can consider each period to be 6 months. The interest earned in that period is 3%.
