María
Maria is 34 years old and lives with her husband, Jesus, and their 3 children, whom they care for in their own house, located near Rundo.

Maria is a farmer but lacks farm land of her own. So, she rents fields, on an annual basis, where she sows potatoes, corn, green peas, and other crops according to season. Her husband helps her with the hard work the country labor requires. Maria also cares for her 10 cows, who produce 30 to 35 liters of milk daily for a milk enterprise. Since she likes animals, she also raises pigs and sheep, fattening them and, eventually, only when there is the need, she sells them to the ranchers of the zone.

Maria belongs to the “[Rumbo] al Progreso” [Direction of Progress] communal bank. This is her 8th loan with MFP, and she is grateful for the financial help received during all this time. Maria promises to be punctual in making her payments. She is also happy to belong to her group because the people are responsible and supportive.

Maria will invest this money in purchasing natural fertilizers to spread among her corn and potato plants, and she will pay the rent on her agricultural lands.

María tiene 34 años, vive en compañía de su esposo, Jesús, y sus tres hijos, a los que cuida en su casa propia ubicada en la localidad de Rundo.
Es agricultora, pero no cuenta con terrenos propios, por ello alquila, de manera anual, las tierras donde siembra papa, maíz, alverja y otros productos según la temporada. Su esposo le ayuda en los trabajos duros que requiere el campo y ella también se dedica al cuidado de sus 10 vacas, de los cuales entrega de 30 a 35 litros de leche diaria a una empresa de lácteos. Pero como le gustan los animales, también cría cerdos y ovejas, los que engorda y de manera eventual, sólo cuando tiene alguna necesidad económica, los vender a los ganaderos de la zona.

Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Rundo al progreso” y este su crédito número 8 con MFP, donde agradece el apoyo financiero recibido durante todo este tiempo. Por ello promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas, y además le agrada pertenecer a su grupo porque las personas son responsables y solidarias.
María invertirá este dinero en la compra de fertilizantes naturales para esparcir entre sus cultivos de maíz y papa, además del pago del alquiler de su terreno agrícola.
