Maria
María is 44 years old and is a responsible mother. She has 2 daughters, but she only lives with Yanina, her oldest daughter. She raised her daughters by herself. "It was difficult," she says, but with the help of her family she was able to get by.

Her main source of income is embroidering traditional "Wanka" underskirts. She embroiders with thread and sells her products for 200 sols. She makes an average of 2 products a week, which she sells in a well-known market in the city. However, like every good country woman, she also sows potatoes and olluco (a native tuber) on her own farmland.

She says that when she harvests her crops, she sells them in the market in one of the districts of the city, where she makes good profits. She makes the most of this opportunity to sell the animals that she raises (bulls and pigs). Currently, María is calm in the knowledge that she will help her youngest daughter become a professional.

María is a member of "Barrio Oriental" (Eastern Neighborhood) communal bank and this is her 17th loan from MFP. She is thankful for their support, which will allow her to achieve her goals. For her part, she pledges to make her repayments on time. In addition, she enjoys being a part of their organization and has been involved with them for many years.

María will invest the money she has requested in buying organic fertilizer to use for the next harvest and also balanced feed for her animals.

María, de 44 años es una madre responsable. Tiene 2 hijas, pero solo vive con Yanina, la última hija. Cuidó de sus hijas, sola, “fue difícil”, comenta pero con la ayuda de su familia pudo salir adelante. Su principal actividad económica es el bordado de fustanes Wanka, que son trajes típicos. Consiste en el bordado a hilo, los cuales vende a 200 nuevos soles, y a la semana realiza un promedio de 2 que comercializa en un mercado reconocido de la ciudad. Pero como buena mujer del campo, por temporadas siembra papa y olluco en sus propios terrenos agrícolas, cuenta que en cada cosecha comercializa sus alimentos en la feria de uno de los distritos de la ciudad, donde obtiene buenas ganancias, aprovecha esa oportunidad, para vender los animales que cría entre toros y cerdos. Ahora se encuentra tranquila y con la convicción de sacar profesional a su última hija. Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “barrio oriental” y este es el crédito número 17 con MFP, por tanto agradece su apoyo, con el cual logrará cumplir con sus objetivos. Por otro lado promete cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas. Además le agrada ser parte de su asociación, pues lleva muchos años de conocerlos.
María; invertirá el dinero en la compra de abono orgánico para su próxima siembra y si el dinero le alcanza comprará comida balanceada para sus animales.
