Florencia's story

Quillabamba is the capital city of La Convención province and an important commerce center in the Lares and La Convención valleys. The main economic activity is production of coca, coffee, cacao, and fruit.

Florencia is 53-years-old and has two children. She was born in Cusco (Peru), but no now lives in the community called Papel Pata 45 minutes away from the city of Quillabamba (La Convención, Cusco).

Since she was very young she has worked in agriculture. She grows fruit, cacao, and coffee and distributes them in the city of Quillabamba. She has been in this business for several years and it has been going very well for her thanks to the effort she puts into her work. At this time she needs the loan to buy fruit and for cacao plantations.
