Blanca Lucía's story

Blanca, 53 years old, is a peasant who lives on the Miel path, located in the municipality of Ceja, Colombia. Her great passion is for nature, especially flowers. They motivate her to grow a garden at her home, cultivate and sell a large variety of plants. In her view, this activity has allowed her to improve her quality of life and give her two children an education.

Her greatest dream is to be able to set up a sales stand in her town because this would help her increase her sales. For now, it is clear that this would be a project for the medium term, and she is focused on buying a stand and supplies with which she will improve and expand her production. For this, she is requesting a loan because she does not have the resources for this investment.

Her wish is that people would take ownership of their surroundings and learn to look at nature as the most important element for the growth of life on the planet.
