Lorena runs a mill and has done so for 5 years. Before that she stayed home and it was one of her sisters who persuaded her to open the mill. She starts her day at 5:00am to attend to her clients when they arrive at the mill and to prepare breakfast for her family. She finishes her day at 5:00pm as this is when the mill closes.
She will use the loan that she is requesting to sow a hectare of corn, for which she will buy seed, fertilizer, and herbicide.
Her dreams are to buy more land so that each of her children will have a place to build a house and she would also like to have 5 milk cows.
