Lucy is 59 years old and she is a happy woman that strives to overcome all hardships. She is very friendly and cordial. She is divorced and she lives in her own home with her daughter who is 24 years old. Lucy is a seamstress, which is a profession that she learned by studying in an occupational school. With her savings, she bought a sewing machine for her home which she uses to provide services to her customers who always come to her because she does great work. She has managed to secure a loyal clientele.

She likes her work because she enjoys sewing and she can also earn good money. However, it is a bit uncomfortable as it is physically demanding work and she has to sit in the same position for a long time, which gives her back pain. This does not discourage her as she continues working and getting stronger.

She has plans to grow her business by buying more sewing machines and doing work for more customers. This loan will be her 8th with Kiva. She is thankful for the financial help that she has received and she wants to continue working with Kiva. She promises to comply with the repayment schedule and pay punctually. With the 2,500 soles that she is asking for, she will buy a sewing machine and sewing materials such as fabric, thread, and more.
