They all live together in their own home. Albina is a very hard-working woman. Starting very early in the morning, she goes to her fields where she harvests coca plants. This product lets her get ahead and give her children a better quality of life. She has done this work for 37 years. She used to do it with the help of her husband, and now she has the help of her 2 sons, who help her with her efforts.

This is where they pay her well by weight of the coca. Her future plans are to see her children become professionals and that they have a good stay. This will be her fifth loan with Microfinanzas Prisma, and she promises to be very punctual with her payments.
