Maryori Nataly's story

Maryori is a young mother who is 27 years old, her son is 5 years old. She is married and a housewife who works with her husband growing coffee and pineapples. She had 12 years of education which meant she studied at primary and secondary school and obtained knowledge that she could apply to her life and her businesses, graduating as a business expert and public accountant.

She is a businesswoman while she is not working on the land working selling pineapples and coconuts. Her customers are travelers who travel between different parts of the country as her stall is located in a very strategic spot on the CA-5 which connects the north and south of the country.

She has spent more than 10 years in agriculture since it was her parents who taught her from a very young age, and who also left her a plot of land to work which she expanded through good administration of her earnings and strengthening it bit by bit. The land which she works with her husband is located 1km from her house which she walks to daily.

Her aim is to be one of the best producers in the area, and obtain a good quality of product so that her customers become regulars and can always be trusted. As a mother she wants to give her son a good education and to strengthen their inheritance for their descendents so that they can face life in a positive way and can support their families. This is why she is now asking for a loan to strengthen their pineapple and coffee crops, buying the necessary supplies that will make her crops look better and avoid the spreading of diseases and infestations.
