María is 45 years old and lives with her husband Luis. The couple have six children but only live with three of them: Martín, Rosario and Luis. They live in their own home which is located in a small rural community in the central jungle.

María's business is farming. Thanks to her perseverance and tenacity, she managed to receive 3 hectares of farmland from her community. María works very hard to keep her family together and to support her husband, Luis, in maintaining their crops. Luis says that when they first formed their family, 21 years ago, they started growing coffee and bananas. The support that he receives from María motivates him. "She is very skillful in making sales", he says. After every harvest, María sells their bananas in the city of La Merced. They sell their coffee beans through the cooperative in their community. As partners, María is happy to have the constant support of her husband. Together they would like to work hard to improve their plantings so that they can increase their production. María would like to sow more coffee seeds and prepare coffee nurseries but she needs your support for this.

María is a member of “La unión hace la fuerza del palomar” community bank and this is her third loan from MFP. She hopes to receive a small loan so that she can continue with her plans. She pledges to be punctual in making her repayments.

With your support, María will invest the money she has requested in buying several sacks of organic fertilizer to strengthen her coffee nursery and to create more seedlings for future planting.
