Lurgia
Lurgia is 21 years old. She is married to Rafael and they have three children. They all live in a house made with adobe. She and her husband work in agriculture. They own a one-and-a-half hectares piece of land they inherited from their parents when they were young but responsible enough to sustain themselves economically. Together, they grow a wide variety of crops, such as cocoa, coffee, varbasco [common mullein] and different fruit trees.

Lurgia has been doing this for more than five years and with time, the price of these products has improved, resulting in a better income. However, she must invest in organic fertilizer and tools every harvesting season. This is her third loan with Kiva and she feels confident about the future of her business.

She is requesting a loan of 3,000 nuevos soles [PEN] to buy a small piece of land close to where she lives, in which she is planning to grow more cocoa.

Lurgia tiene 21 años, está casada con Rafael y tiene 3 hijos que viven con ella en su casa hecha de adobe. Se dedica junto a su esposo al oficio de la agricultura en su terreno de una hectárea y media que sus padres le cedieron desde joven al tener la responsabilidad de mantenerse económicamente. Posee una buena variedad de productos como son el cacao, café, barbasco y árboles frutales que produce con el permanente apoyo de su pareja. Lleva más de 5 años en el rubro y a medida que fueron pasando los años el precio de sus productos ha presentado una mejoría logrando obtener mejores ingresos, no obstante debe también invertir en la compra de abono orgánico y herramientas en cada campaña productiva. Es el tercer préstamo que solicita a kiva y se siente segura de avanzar con su negocio.
Desea en esta oportunidad contar con 3,000 nuevos soles para la compra de un pequeño terreno cercano a su localidad donde planea expandir sus plantaciones de cacao.
