Maria is 46 years old and she is a very happy mom. She is separated and she lives in her own home together with her two daughters. For more than 9 years she has sold merchandise and general crafts. Every month she travels to the provinces from where she collects household items and ceramics. In the beginning her customers were her family and some friends.

María, de 46 años, es una madre de familia jovial, es separada y viven en su casa propia, junto a sus dos hijas. Hace más de 9 años, se dedica a la venta de artefactos y artesanías en general. Es así que cada fin de mes viaja a provincias, llevando variedad de artefactos para el hogar y de regreso compra cerámicas de arcillas. En un inicio sus clientes eran sus familiares y algunos amigos, pero con el tiempo logró captar clientela. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo, es el viaje que hace a provincias, ya que se distrae mucho y a la vez se genera sus propios ingresos económicos. Lleva más de 9 años realizando esta actividad y lo que espera en lo sucesivo es recorrer todo el país, para que así pueda realizar obras de labor social, que la ayuden a favor de los más necesitados de su distrito. Este es su quinceavo crédito con MFP, y sabe que tiene que pagar puntualmente sus cuotas y esta dispuesta hacerlo. Es la líder de su grupo y como tal es muy responsable. Con el crédito que solicita, incrementará de cerámicas y demás adornos, para atender los pedidos que tiene pendiente.
