Lucia's story

Lucia is 66 years old. She is a woman who is always working to find success in life. She lives in her own home together with her youngest daughter Katy, 21 years old. She is the reason for all of her efforts. Lucia's business is cultivating bananas and coffee. Every day since the very early morning hours she works in her fields. She knows that her earnings depend on this hard work, her earnings depending on the quality of the harvest. The part she likes most about her work is harvesting the plantations. She feels rewarded for the months' worth of work. In the future she hopes to purchase more land to obtain better earnings. This is her fourth loan through MFP (Kiva Field Partner). She indicates that this loan will help her significantly in the progress of her business. In the community group she is a very well liked member, being very close to her colleagues. With the one thousand five hundred nuevos soles she requests she will purchase products that will help her avoid damage due to insect pests.
