She is the owner of some land called "El León Pampa" where she plants fruit trees and ornamental plants. She has always worked in agriculture. She is a woman who has struggled a lot and thanks to FINCA Peru and the trainings she gets in her communal bank, she was able to learn the values that helped her to raise her children. Now the loan she is asking for will be invested in buying bags of black soil to plant trees.
