Maria
María is 54 years old. She lives with her husband, Benjamín, and two of their children.
She is a farmer. She starts every day looking after her family and then heads out to the fields, where she's planted peas, beans, corn, potatoes, alfalfa, and other crops. She likes her work because she knows that everything she produces is the fruit of her labor. The pea harvest is coming up, and after the harvest she will transport the peas to the wholesale market. She's been working as a farmer for more than 30 years, and she says it's difficult but rewarding work, because it's allowed her to educate all of her children.

This is her sixth loan with MFP, and she is committed to making her monthly payments on time. She is a member of the Nueva Esperanza - Huaylahuichán village bank, where she is the president of the board and inspires her fellow members to participate.
María will be planting peas again, so she will invest 2400 soles from this loan in buying four bags of seed; she will use the rest to buy fertilizer.

María tiene 54 años, vive con su esposo Benjamín y dos de sus hijos.
Ella es agricultora. Todos los días empieza el día rodeada de su familia para atenderlos y luego se dirige hacia sus cultivos donde tiene sembrado arvejas, habas, maíz, papas, alfalfa y otros. Está contenta con su trabajo porque sabe que todo lo que obtiene es fruto de su esfuerzo. Ahora tiene pendiente la cosecha de una parcela de arvejas, las que después de cosecharlas, trasladará al mercado mayorista. Lleva más de 30 años en esta actividad y menciona que es demasiado sacrificada pero tiene su recompensa, pues de esa manera ha logrado educar a sus hijos mayores y hace lo mismo con los dos pequeños.

Este es su sexto crédito con MFP, por lo que se compromete en pagar las cuotas mensuales con puntualidad. Ella pertenece al banco comunal “Nueva Esperanza Huaylahuichán”, donde es la presidenta de la junta directiva e inspira a sus compañeros a participar.
María volverá a sembrar arvejas, por eso invertirá este dinero en la compra de cuatro bolsas de semillas de arvejas (usará 2400 soles), con lo restante adquirirá fertilizantes.
