Maximiliana's story

Maximiliana is 21 years old. She is a very joyful young woman who really wants to get ahead in life. She lives with her husband in her mother's house and what she wants the most is to have a better future.

Since the time she was very young, she felt that she had to work as much as she could. That is why, when she was 17 years old, she began to sell fast food. With those earnings she was able to get the money together that she needed to buy 2 cows. Together with the lambs that her mother gave her, she has been able to get ahead little by little by selling cattle.

What she likes the most about her job is feeding her animals, since she has a lot of affection for them. She has been doing this for 7 years and thinks that the hardest part is transporting her cattle to the city market. With time, she hopes to increase the number of animals that she has, since she thinks that it is time to grow.

This is the fifth loan that Maximiliana has had with MFP. She want to make her payments on time since she wants to access loans afterwards in order to improve her business. She knows that her communal bank will support her and guide her, since she is a well liked member. With the thousand nuevos soles she has requested, she will buy a couple of lambs to feed and take care of and later sell.
