Lucia's story

The hot city of Nazca is surrounded by tourist attractions and is known most of all for the generosity of its inhabitants. Here lives Lucia, a 45-year-old mother of eight children whom she loves very much and for whom she fights tirelessly alongside her husband to offer a decent life with a lot of love and affection. Lucia learned to work from a very young age because her parents had few resources, so she only has a sixth-grade education, but she would love to be able to finish school. Day to day, Lucia works in her small business baking and selling bread. She gets up very early to bake the bread to be ready to sell to her customers, mostly around school time. She believes she is making headway with her business because she is responsible and has a strong desire to keep moving forward. Lucia is very happy and grateful for Kiva lenders, because thanks to your support she will be able to improve her home by putting down flooring and painting walls, among other things. In this way she can improve her quality of life, have more security and be able to keep fighting to realize her biggest dream: expanding her bakery and being able to offer more products.
