Prior to this she had worked as a farmer with her husband, but thanks to a friend she got the opportunity to work in a hospital. She gets up at 5:00 a.m. to prepare breakfast for her children. Afterwards she sends them to school and completes household chores. At 2:00 p.m. she prepares to go to her job at the hospital, where she works the overnight shift.

She is seeking a loan from Fundación Campo to pay for medical exams for her mother, who is ill and does not have the money to cover her own medical expenses. Lucia reports that her mother is very important to her.

Another goal of hers is for her children to graduate from college, so that they will have better career opportunities. Also, she wants to build her own home since she currently is living in her mother's house.

Antes ella junto con su esposo se dedicaba a la agricultura; pero gracias a una amiga se le presento la oportunidad de trabajar en el hospital. Se levanta a las 5:00 a.m. a preparar el desayuno a sus hijos, luego los envía a la escuela y ella queda en casa realizando los oficios. A las 2:00 p.m. se prepara para irse a su trabajo en el hospital, ya que su horario de trabajo es de 6:00 p.m. a 6:00 a.m. del siguiente día.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para realizarle un chequeo medico a su madre; ya que se encuentra enferma y tiene que realizarle unos exámenes médicos y no poseen el dinero para realizárselos por su propia cuenta. Es necesario contar con el dinero, pues Lucia nos comenta que su madre es muy importante para ella.

Otro de sus propósitos, es graduar a sus hijos en la universidad; para que se les presenten mejores oportunidades de trabajo. Además, desea construir su propia casa ya que actualmente vive en casa de su mamá.
