Luz Marina
View original language description ↓
Luz and her family work day and night at the chores required of people who farm and raise livestock, chores that she's been doing for 12 years. She has two children and her hard work is for them. Farming chores are difficult and tiring because they require working the soil in the hot sun and tending to the needs of farm animals. All this work for a woman on her own is exhausting but Luz has to do it because it is how she supports herself and her children. In order to improve her crop production, she needs to buy seeds, fertilizer and other things. Feed for the animals that she's raising, for example. Put your trust in her work and give her your support.

Translated from Spanish by Jere Wiseman, Kiva Volunteer


Luz, una madre de familia que trabaja constantemente en las tareas de agricultura y ganadería, labor a la cual se viene dedicando 12 años de su vida. Ella tiene dos hijos y ellos son el motivo de su esfuerzo diario. Las tareas del campo son arduas y muy cansadas ya que tiene que labrar la tierra bajo en sol extenuante y por otro lado sacar a pastear su ganado. Todas estas labores para una mujer sola son agotadoras, pero Luz debe hacerlas porque de ello depende el sustento de su casa. Para mejorar la producción de sus cultivos ella necesita comprar más semillas, abonos y demás. Además de la alimentación para los animales que ella cría. Confía en su trabajo y bríndale tu apoyo.
