Victoria
Victoria is a very hard working woman who is responsible for taking care of all five of her children after she and her husband separated two years ago. She and her children live in her father's house, which she inherited when she was single.

Every morning she gets up very early to make breakfast for her kids, and then she goes out to tend her coffee plants and lands. She sometimes works as a day laborer on her neighbors' lands in order to make a living and provide for her children.

Her favorite aspect of her job is chatting with her neighbors while they are harvesting or tending crops, or when they are pulling weeds on their land. What worries her, however, is that she has to leave her children alone while she works hard all day to provide for them. Her goal for the future is to open a general store out of her home so that she can be with her children and work at the same time. For that reason, she works as hard as she can to save up money to achieve her dream.

Victoria is very grateful for the support and the opportunity to receive this loan, and she promises to make all payments on time. She is grateful to her local community bank for letting her be a member of the group. With the 1,500 nuevos soles in this loan she plans to purchase manure and fertilizers for maintaining and tending her coffee plants.
