Julia
Julia is 44 years old and lives with her husband and three children. She works day to day, tending the agricultural fields, where she is worked for the last 30 years. She plants native goods from her region, as well as alfalfa, with which she feeds her guinea pigs. This activity allows her to patiently wait, without economic worries, for the harvest, when she will see the fruits of her labor. Her daily journey which begins very early in the morning consists of : she cuts hay for her guinea pigs, stores it so that it cannot get wet, and collects dry hay from the day before to giver to her guinea pigs; she then returns home to take care of her children. Julia is strong for her children and also because she enjoys her daily work. She is requesting a loan with which she will purchase more male guinea pigs, as reproducers for her herd, as well as sacks of fertilizer, with which she can continue to cultivate alfalfa in another area of land she has.
