Mirta Juana
Mirta is a widow; her husband passed away some years ago. Since then, she works alone to get her family ahead. She works in agriculture, contracting day laborers for production. During the last harvest, she had climate problems and also suffered from shortages of irritation water. Therefore, her crops lowered their yield making a minimum production. In consequence, her economic income was summarily affected because it depends on her agricultural production. Each year, she mainly produces potatoes, onions and beans.

The woman is a very hardworking person. She currently lives with one of her children who helps her with the work. Since she doesn't have many resources, she is applying for a loan for the purchase of agricultural supplies to improve her production and expand her agricultural frontier, with the goal of having better economic income and providing better living conditions to her family.
