Maximina
Maximina, 45, lives in the house she bought with her husband, Benito, 49. They have four children.

She likes farm labor because from a very young age she learned about cacao and coffee plants. Since she got her plot of land she hasn't hesitated to work it to grow cacao plants because she considers them very profitable. She has done this work for 28 years. She has her own plot of land and one of the things she likes most is to harvest the cacao with the people from her community who help her with the harvest. She sells her crop to the distribution centers, where they give her a good price per kilogram of cacao.

Her greatest desire is to buy another plot of land and continue growing cacao, but now her priority is to do crop maintenance for her next harvest.

This is her first loan with MFP and she is grateful for the help it gives her. She promises to be punctual with her payments so she will have the opportunity to get another loan. In her communal bank she is happy to know that she has the support and advice of her partners.

With the 4,000 nuevos soles [PEN] from this loan she will buy bags of manure to fertilize her cacao plants with the help of the day laborers she will hire.

Maximina tiene 45 años, vive en la casa que compró junto a su esposo, Benito de 49 años. Tienen cuatro hijos.
A ella le gusta el trabajo de campo, ya que desde muy pequeña aprendió sobre los cultivos de cacao y café. Desde que obtuvo su parcela no dudó en labrar su tierra para cultivar plantas de cacao, porque los considera muy rentables. Esta labor la realiza hace 28 años, tiene su propia parcela y una de las cosas que más le gusta es cosechar los frutos de cacao con las personas de su comunidad que le apoyan en las cosechas. Vende su producción a los centros de acopio, donde le remuneran un buen precio por cada kilogramo de cacao. Su mayor anhelo es comprar otro terreno y seguir cultivando cacao, pero ahora prioriza realizar el mantenimiento de sus cultivos para su próxima cosecha.

Este es su primer crédito con MFP y se siente agradecida con el apoyo que le brindan. Se compromete a ser puntual con sus cuotas de pago para que en otra oportunidad logre acceder a otro crédito. En su banco comunal se siente tranquila al saber que cuenta con el apoyo y consejos de sus compañeros.
Con los 4,000 nuevos soles de este préstamo comprará sacos de abono para fertilizar sus plantas de cacao, con el apoyo de jornaleros que contratará.
