Maximiliana
Maximiliana, age 39, is married and has two children. They live together in the tropical Peruvian jungle in the Sirenachayocc community, an annex of the Quimbiri district. They have their own house, which is built from a wood foundation and a tin roof.

Due to the national crisis that affected our country in the 80’s, Maximiliana’s family was at the point of succumbing. Her main source of income was the farming, but after the constant road closings they could not sell any of their products. Everything they had invested turned into debt for her family. At just nine years of age Maximiliana realized the hardships that occurred during this time.

Now she is a well-centered woman who is responsible with her business activities. She works the land with her husband. They grow coffee and cacao plants on their plot of land. She has been working on her land for 18 years. During the harvest season she has the help of her children and the labor of workers who can pick the fruit with great speed.

What she likes the most about her work is harvesting the fruits of the plants. She feels that the months of hard work are compensated by the quality of her fruits. She considers the most difficult part of her job to be transporting her products from the farm to the distribution centers in the city of San Francisco. That is where they offer better prices for her grains.

The requested loan is to buy organic and chemical fertilizers to improve her products. Also, in the future she longs to expand her cacao plantings because she has two hectares of land.

This is her third loan with MFP. She pledges to continue making her payments on time. She is very pleased to be working with her communal bank. She will use the requested 3,000 soles to buy natural and chemical fertilizers in order to improve her production.

Maximiliana, de 39 años de edad, es casada y tiene dos hijos en su haber. Juntos residen en la selva tropical peruana, ubicada en la comunidad de Sirenachayocc anexo del distrito de Quimbiri, donde tienen su techo propio construido a base de madera y techo de calamina. Debido a la crisis nacional que aquejaba nuestro país en los años 80, la familia de Maximiliana estaba a punto de sucumbir, su fuente principal era la actividad agrícola, pero ante los cierres constantes de las carreteras no pudieron vender ninguno de sus productos, y todo lo invertido se convirtió en deudas para su familia. Maximiliana con apenas 09 años se daba cuenta de las penurias que pasaban en esa época. Hoy es una mujer bien centrada y responsable de sus actividades y junto con su esposo se dedican a labrar la tierra; en su parcela tienen sembrios de plantas de café y cacao. Viene trabajando 18 años en sus propias tierras, En tiempos de cosecha cuenta con el apoyo de sus hijos y de la mano de los jornaleros para así avanzar con mayor rapidez con las extracciones de los frutos. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es cosechar los frutos de las plantas; ya que así siente que los meses de arduo trabajo le brindan como recompensa la calidad de sus frutos. Considera que lo más difícil es transportar sus productos desde la chacra hasta los centros de acopio ubicados en la ciudad de san francisco; lugar donde le ofrecen mejores precios por sus granos. El crédito solicitado es para la compra de abonos y fertilizantes para así mejorar sus productos; además en el futuro anhela ampliar sus plantaciones de cacao ya que cuenta con 02 hectáreas de terreno. Este es su tercer crédito con MFP, por el cual se compromete a seguir cumpliendo con sus respectivos pagos, además se siente satisfecha por trabajar con su banco comunal. Con los 3,000 nuevos soles solicitados, comprará abonos y fertilizantes para mejorar su producción.
