Lucy is a simple woman of 48. She lives with her husband Alberto with whom she has seven children, but she only lives with four of them now, and she cares for them in the house she bought 20 years ago. Thanks to her constant hard work, she was able to buy her own farm fields, where she plants peas, corn, and other vegetables. She says that she is very fond of her work because it gives her a very good income. She also says that she will be able to start planting the peas in a few months and she is sure to have good results because she puts a lot of care into her crops.

Now she wants to save up money to buy her own small truck in order to transport her crops without having to pay anyone else for it. This is her first loan with Kiva and she is grateful for the support she has received, because it will help her increase her income. Furthermore, she is committed to being on time with her payments. Lucy will invest 1000 Nuevos Soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer to nourish her next crop.
