Lucrecia never imagined that she would be able to earn a good income through her wine selling business. It all started a few years ago when this diligent mother decided to travel for a few days to the city of Tacna, Peru. On the way back to her hometown of Juliaca, Peru, she decided to purchase some wines in order to offer them to her family and neighbors. From that day forward this business has allowed her to provide post-secondary education to her two adorable children, for whom she feels very proud and satisfied as a mother. Each weekend she offers her wines in her hometown market. Her clients come regularly to purchase Lucrecia’s pleasant wines. On week days Lucrecia helps her husband in his noble labor as a tailor in order to further assist with family finances. Lucrecia and her husband are no longer responsible economically for their children, but they want to continue to improve their income. For this reason, they need generous hearts that will offer them the opportunity to increase their investment capital
