Victoria
57-year-old Victoria is a cheerful woman. She lives with her husband, León, and the couple have six children who are all independent. Victoria now lives with one of her daughters, her husband and her grandson in a house that they inherited from her parents.

Victoria's day is focused on a number of activities. Her farmland is located one hour's walk from her home. There she sows quinoa, peas, beans, corn and other vegetables. She cares for her crops with her husband's help. It was her husband who taught her everything she now knows about farming. When she harvests her greens, she sells them in the country's capital city but she sells the rest, together with the raw coffee beans she buys, at the market in the city of Jauja twice a week. This is her main business activity, from which she makes the most income. On other days of the week she cares for her animals as she owns cows, guinea pigs, pigs and donkeys. She obtains milk from the cows, which she sells every day.

This is Victoria's second loan from Kiva and she feels grateful for the support she is receiving which helps her to continue with her work. Victoria will invest the 4,000 soles she has requested in buying sacks of organic fertilizer with which to nourish her crops.
