Maria
María is 44 years old, she has two children but now she only lives with one of them, her youngest. They live in her sister's house. She cares for her daughters alone, it was difficult, but with her family's help she was able to be successful. Her primary economic activity is embroidering slips/skirts, typical dress of the region, each one sells for 200 Peruvian soles and she can make two a week. But like a good country woman, during the right seasons, she also plants potatoes and olluco (a Peruvian tuber plant) on her own land, each season she sells her harvest at a festival in one of the districts of her city, she also takes advantage of this opportunity to sell the animals she raises (cows and pigs).

She belongs to a group called "Barrio oriental" and this is her 15th loan with MFP and she is thankful for the help she has received from this group over the years (more than 6 ) and she promises to make her payments punctually. María will invest this money in purchasing cloth and skirts to embroider as well as natural fertilizers for her next harvest.

María tiene 44 años, tiene dos hijos, pero ahora sólo vive con una, la última. Viven en la casa de su hermana.
Cuidar de sus hijas sola, fue difícil, pero con la ayuda de su familia pudo salir adelante. Su principal actividad económica es el bordado de fustanes, que son trajes típicos, cada uno lo vende a 200 nuevos soles y a la semana realiza dos. Pero como buena mujer del campo, por temporadas, siembra papa y olluco en sus propios terrenos agrícolas, cada cosecha la comercializa en la feria de uno de los distritos de la ciudad, también aprovecha esa oportunidad para vender los animales que cría (toros y cerdos).

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Barrio oriental” y este es su crédito número 15 con MFP, por tanto agradece el apoyo que ha recibido por tantos años (más de 6), y promete cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas puntualmente.
María invertirá este dinero en la compra de telas y paños para el bordado, además de fertilizantes naturales para su próxima siembra.
