Alejandra Patricia
Señora Patricia is 35 years old. She is married to Señor Julián. Together they have 6 children, ages 12, 10, 8, 6, and 3 years and the youngest girl is only 6 months. They are a family of very scarce economic resources. In the visit carried out for the evaluation of the loan, the poverty in which this family lives could be clearly seen.

They live in the community of Koluyo (on the hill). Their small house is built of stones and straw. It only has two rooms; one used by the parents and the other used by the 6 children. Their diet consists only of cereals (wheat and corn) and some vegetables such as potatoes, beans and vetch (peas). They do not consume any type of meat and fruits only once a year. But despite their situation, they are together and they are very happy.

The main activity of this family is agriculture, producing potatoes, wheat, barley, beans, and vetch (peas). The loan will be used to purchase seeds and fertilizer for the second sowing season of the year. Among their dreams and goals this to build a new home with better conditions, such as a kitchen, bath and other things.
