Kriscia Lorena's story

Kriscia studied through the second grade. She is in a relationship and has two children, one of whom is in school.

Kriscia has been cultivating jicama for 11 years, having learned this trade from her companion. The parcel of land that she plants is located 10 minutes from her house. She travels by foot and works from 5:30 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. In addition, she raises cattle for eventual resale.

Kriscia needs a loan to buy cattle to raise and sell. She dreams of continuing her work and saving in order to support her children’s studies.
