Lucia is a member of the communal bank Alondras. She is 31 years old and the mother of four children. She sells small farm animals like hens and sheep and sometimes cattle in Huascahua. She’s been involved with the Finca Peru for five years, and during this time they’ve taught her how to take on more responsibilities and expand her business. With the loans she’s gotten in the past, she was able to educate her children and to buy necessities for her home. She is very happy with Finca Peru. She will invest the loan she’s requested into bringing animals to the market to sell.
