Basilia
Basilia is 64 years old and lives in the city of Nazca, along with her husband and four children, whom she loves and are her main reasons for living. She is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who dedicates all of her efforts, along with her husband, toward getting their family ahead. Unfortunately, due to lack of financial resources, she had to go to work when she was very young and was not able to study for a professional career. She likes to watch TV in her spare time and at times likes to cook a Pure con Bistek dish to share with her family. With great effort, dedication, and with the skills her parents taught her, Basilia farms and has a small parcel where she raises lima beans and cotton. She works the fields for about 10 hours a day and is able to do the job well, thanks to her experience.

Basilina is very grateful to the Kiva lenders and thanks to their help she will be able to buy fertilizer and cover the cost of irrigating her lima bean crop. In this way Basilia will be able to obtain a good harvest and be able to continue working and making an effort to achieve her dream of a secure home and better wellbeing for her family.
