Lucia is 42 years old, married and with her husband she has 6 children she loves very much. Lucia is very loving and in her free time she loves to take her grandchildren out. She lives in the city of Mala, which is known for its hot climate and whose main business is farming. As a good Peruvian, Lucia loves food and one of her favorite dishes is "Lomo Saltado". She finished secondary school but due to her parents' lack of economic resources she was unable to continue her studies.

Lucia has a business where she sells breakfast food, shaved ice, soda and more. She works about 10 hours a day and has as many as 45 customers in a day. She thinks her business is going well because of her friendliness with her customers and because she cooks very tasty breakfasts.

Lucia is very grateful to Kiva lenders for their support, which she will use to buy more merchandises (sodas, candy, etc). She would like to expand the products she sells in order to offer her customers more variety and hopefully increase her profits. Her dream is to afford professional studies for her children and to have her own store.
