Adriana, 65, is happily married. She lives in the city of Ica with her husband and their two children, the heart and soul of her life. Adriana is a happy and enthusiastic person. She and her husband have worked hard all their lives to make a better life for their family. She would have liked to have studied for a career but, unfortunately, she had to leave school early. In her spare time, she likes to cook, and she tells us that chicharrones de pollo is a special favorite for her family.
Adriana has a farming business that she has worked hard to build over many years. She grows grapes, working on her small farm every day, from early in the morning. She likes the work and says that she's successful because she learned farming from her parents and has worked at it all of her life.
Adrian is grateful to Kiva lenders because their help will provide the funds she needs to maintain her crop: irrigating it, fertilizing it, weeding it, etc. The investment will allow her to harvest a good crop and continue developing her business. For the future, Adriana hopes to continue working and live for many years more at the side of her beloved family.
