Maximiliana's story

Maximiliana is 52 years old and a hardworking and cheerful mother. She lives in the house she inherited from her mother with her son, for whom she wants to improve their quality of life.


The products she grows require much effort and dedication, and have helped her progress in life. Every morning she works on her land, knowing that the care she provides her crops will determine their quality. What she enjoys most about her work is looking after her crops and feeling joyful whenever her harvest is large and abundant. Maximiliana has been farming for 22 years and considers the most difficult part to be hauling her crops to the city market because the bags of produce are so heavy. Later on she hopes to improve her products so that she can command better prices.


This is her first loan with MFP. Maximiliana knows she has to submit all of her payments on time and is committed to doing so. In her Communal Bank, she is a very cooperative and responsible member. With her loan of 1000 PEN, she plans to buy seeds for her crops of peas. She will also buy compost and insecticides.
