Brigida Lorena's story
Lorena is 22 years old. She is single, and she has a child. She lives in the Diez de Agosto parish, which is a nice neighborhood located on the road to Triunfo. The area is considered to be warm and humid with lots of vegetation. Lorena makes a living producing and cultivating cane fruit. She carries out this work alone. She wished to become a teacher, but she was unable to continue her studies as a result of her family's economic situation. She is an entrepreneurial woman, and she learned how to cultivate cane from her mother. In addition to this work, she raises chickens. When there are events in her parish, she uses them to sell chicken skewers. She is the sole supporter of her household. She is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer for her cane fruit crops.
