Lucy Marlene
View original language description ↓

Lucy has been able to dedicate herself to agriculture with much enthusiasm, thanks to the help of her mother, who from when she was small taught her the occupational hazards and how to sell products commercially, motivated by which she offers her products in the town of Chancamayo with thoughts of now transporting them to Lima. With this aim she leaves her mother caring for the products and her lands, who very obligingly agreed to assume the care while her daughter sought buyers.

Despite having the help of her mother, Lucy saw the need to widen their zone of production and buy further land to cultivate, but she also couldn’t give her mother so much responsibility. In consequence of this situation, she has thought of improving her products in order to acquire a further field which she would be able to personally cultivate when the business is consolidated. With your collaboration Lucy will be able to continue living as she is today, very happily and with much hope of forging a promising future.
