Maribel
Maribel, age 29, has lived with her husband, Darío, and her two children, Enrique and Dayana, in her parents’ house for four years.

She gets her main income from growing potatoes, peas, and barley. The land she farms is two hours from the city. Therefore, she spends most of her time with her husband, with whom she works. Thanks to the constancy of each harvest, she has buyers at the wholesale market in the city. That is where she gets the payment for so many months of effort. “I not only grow in the mountains, but I also have farmland in the jungle where I grow seasonal coffee and pineapples. The coffee does not need much care, and I only harvest it once a year,” she says.

This is her second loan with MFP. In all of this time she was able to take advantage of opportunities for growth that were presented to her. She had the needed capital thanks to these loans. She pledges to be punctual with her payments because all of the members of her group are very responsible.

This time Maribel will use the loan to buy natural fertilizers for the next planting of the “primeriza” variety of potato.

Maribel tiene 29 años, vice en la casa de sus padres, desde hace 4 años, junto a su esposo Darío y sus dos hijos: Enrique y Dayana.
Su principal ingreso económico lo obtiene de la agricultura, siembra papa, alverja y cebada. Sus terrenos agrícolas se ubican a dos horas de distancia de la ciudad, por lo que pasa la mayor parte de su tiempo junto a su esposo, con quien trabaja. Gracias a su constancia en cada cosecha ya tiene compradores en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad, donde obtiene el pago de tantos meses de esfuerzo. “No solo siembro en la sierra, también tengo terrenos agrícolas en la selva, ahí siembro café y piña, por temporada, el café no necesita mucho cuidado, solo cosecho una vez al año”, comenta.

Este es su segundo crédito con MFP y en todo este tiempo pudo aprovechar las oportunidades de desarrollo que se le presentaron, pues tenía el capital necesario gracias a estos préstamos. Por ello promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas, ya que todos los integrantes de su grupo son muy responsables.
Esta vez, Maribel invertirá el dinero en la compra de fertilizantes naturales para la próxima siembra de papa de la variedad “primeriza”.
