Antonia Paula
Antonia is 60 years old and lives with her husband and three children in the city of Camaná in the district of Ocoña. She loves her husband and three children and says they are her main reason for living. Antonia is a very kind, hardworking and enthusiastic person who, along with her husband, dedicates all of her efforts to providing for her family. Regrettably, although she would have liked very much to study a professional career, she was not able to do so because of a lack of economic resources and needing to work to cover her expenses.

In her free moments Antonia likes to weave clothing, and on certain occasions she cooks a delicious Estofado de Carne [beef stew] to share with her family.

On her own initiative and with a lot of effort and determination, Antonia farms a small plot of land where she plants rice and beans. She works everyday from the early hours of the morning for approximately 10 hours. Antonia enjoys working her land, which she thinks does well because of her experience and crop management.

Antonia is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their support she will be able to buy manure and fertilizers for her crop. In this way, she hopes to obtain a good harvest, and she will continue working and striving to achieve her greatest dream, which is to finish the construction of her home in order to increase her family’s security and wellbeing.
