Eustaquia
View original language description ↓
Eustaquia is a hard working woman. Early each day she gets ready to go to the agricultural fields she works with her husband, carrying her tools for working the land with the help of her little friend, Silverio. They raise potatoes, root vegetables, corn and broadbeans; additionally, they herd a few small animals. The work is difficult and requires much dedication and strength.


Eustaquia is the mother of four children. The oldest daughter is married and the younger children study; for this reason her goal is to keep working. Now that it is planting season, the days are more exhausting. Her family hopes that this harvest is successful, because a year ago extreme cold considerably damaged their harvest and caused numerous losses, making it impossible for them to meet all their needs. However, her courage and perseverance pushed her to continue with her activities, and their means of support during this time was the sale of their animals.



For Estaquia, the land is a way of life and each day she thanks God for what they receive from it. She wants to keep working and that is why she is asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of fertilizers for their land. Please support this woman who lives simply but has a tremendous will to succeed.

Eustaquia, es una mujer muy trabajadora; todos los días desde muy temprano se alista para dirigirse a sus campos de cultivo junto a su esposo, llevando con ayuda de su amiguito Silverio sus herramientas para labrar la tierra; ellos cultivan papa, olluco, maíz y habas adicionalmente pastan algunos animalitos. Este trabajo es arduo debido a que requiere de mucha dedicación y fortaleza.


Eustaquia es madre de cuatro hijos, la mayor ya está casada y los menores aún estudian, por esta razón se ha planteado la meta de seguir trabajando y ahora que es época de siembra los días son más agotadores y su familia espera que esta cosecha sea muy provechosa porque hace un año la implacable fuerza del frío perjudicó considerablemente su cosecha y les ocasionó cuantiosas perdidas imposibilitando la satisfacción plena de sus necesidades; sin embargo su esfuerzo y perseverancia la impulsaron a continuar con sus actividades y su sostén durante las épocas de pérdida agrícola fue la venta de ganado.


Para ella el campo es su forma de vida y agradece a Dios por la provisión diaria que recibe. Desea seguir trabajando y es por ello que ahora solicita un préstamo para invertirlos en la compra de abono para sus tierras.Apoyemos a una mujer de humilde de corazón y condición con enormes fuerzas para triunfar.
