Marisol
Marisol is 45 years old and lives with her parents and younger sister in her mother’s house. She has 23 years of experience selling groceries. Her store is one of the longest-established in her area. Her principal economic activity, however, is farming and she has 15 years of experience cultivating products such as peas, corn, potatoes and alfalfa (basically as feed for her animals). Her agricultural lands are a bequest from her mother and during the planting season she contracts laborers to help her work the land. During the harvest she sells her products to buyers who come to her, however there are seasons when the price falls and she has to take her crops to sell at the market.

She belongs to the San Santiago Communal Bank and this is her eleventh loan from MFP. Thus she is grateful for the loan since she will be able to invest in her business. She promises to make her payments on time and enjoys working with her group since all are her neighbors and they are mutually supportive of one another. Marisol will invest this money in the purchase of natural fertilizers to spread in her potato and maize fields.

Marisol tiene 45 años, vive junto a sus padres y su hermana menor, en la casa de su madre.
Tiene 23 años de experiencia en la venta de abarrotes, su tienda es una de las más antiguas de su localidad. Pero su principal actividad económica es la agricultura, ya tiene 15 años de experiencia en la siembra de productos como alverja, maíz, papa y alfalfa (básicamente para la alimentación de sus animales). Sus terrenos agrícolas son herencia de su madre y durante la siembra contrata peones para que le ayuden en el trabajo de la tierra. Ya en la cosecha vende sus productos a los compradores que llegan a su propio terreno, pero hay temporadas en las que baja el precio y ella tiene que llevar a vender sus productos al mercado.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “San santiago” y este es su crédito número 11 con MFP, por lo que agradece el préstamo, pues podrá invertir en su negocio. Promete cumplir con el pago puntual de sus cuotas y además le gusta trabajar con su grupo, pues todas son vecinas de su barrio y se apoyan entres sí.
Marisol invertirá este dinero en la compra de fertilizantes naturales para esparcir entre sus sembríos de papa y maíz.
