Emperatriz's story

Emperatriz is a very enthusiastic and hardworking woman. Her home is located in the city of Ocoña, where the weather is hot and the best rice in the world is grown, as well as beans, chickpeas, and other crops. Whenever Maria has some free time, she enjoys watching movies with her family. She is married and has two children, for whose happiness she gives her life. She also enjoys making her favorite dish, which is chicken stew. Due to limited financial resources she was only able to get a high school education, but she would have liked to attend university. That is why she works hard every day so that her children can become respectable people.

Full of enthusiasm, Emperatriz works as a farmer on her small piece of land. She dedicates around ten hours per day to her business. She believes the reasons why it is going well is because she is a very hard worker and she can count on her husband's support.

Emperatriz is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she will be able to maintain her crops by purchasing fertilizer and other supplies so that she can obtain a good harvest, which in turn will allow her to continue growing and fighting day by day in order to make her biggest dream come true: to become a homeowner.
