Maxima
Máxima is 62 years old. She is married to Rodrigo and they have eight children, but they are all independent adults now.

Farming gave her the satisfaction of giving her the income to help educate her children, who are now living in the city of Lima. She grows corn, peas, and barley on her own land and on rented land. She sells each harvest in the country's capital, where her children help her out with contacts. She also has five cows, all of them diary cows, that produce an average of 35 liters per day. Her livestock is doing very well; her secret is that she grows the alfalfa that is their main food source herself. She also tells us that she gives them animal feed, de-worms them, and checks on them a lot.

This is her eighth loan with MFP and the help she receives puts her at ease. She is also thankful for the trust they have placed in her and she promises to make her payments on time, as she would not let down this association made up of supportive, responsible people.

Máxima will use this money to buy natural fertilizers to scatter on her alfalfa plantings, as well as feed for her animals.

Máxima tiene 62 años, está casada con Rodrigo, tiene ocho hijos, pero ya todos mayores e independientes.
La agricultura le dio la satisfacción de obtener todos los ingresos económicos que le ayudaron a educar a sus hijos, los que se encuentra viviendo en la ciudad de Lima. Siembra maíz, alverja y cebada en sus terrenos propios y otros arrendados. Cada cosecha la comercializa en la capital del país, de donde sus hijos le apoyan para el contacto. También tiene cinco vacas, todas lecheras, de las que produce un promedio de 35 litros diarios. Cuando tienen crías, llegan a producir 70 litros. Le va muy bien en la crianza de sus animales, su secreto es sembrar ella misma la alfalfa, que es su principal alimento; “también les doy comida balanceada, les desparasitó y cuido mucho” dice.

Este es su octavo crédito con MFP y se siente tranquila por el apoyo que recibe. Además agradece la confianza que depositan en ella, prometiendo cumplir con sus cuotas de manera puntual, pues no defraudará a su asociación que la conforman personas solidarias y responsables.
Máxima invertirá este dinero en la compra de fertilizantes naturales para esparcir entre sus sembríos de alfalfa, además de comida balanceada para sus animales.
