Lucia's story

Lucia is a down-to-earth person. She is married, and due to various circumstances she only completed elementary school. She lives in her own house with her husband and their children. They both work in agriculture. Her house is made of rustic materials, and it is located in the Tiraque province in the Cochabamba department. She has two small children who go to school in order to have a better education.

Her main business activity is agricultural production. The products that she grows are potatoes, green pea pods, oats, wheat, corn, and barley. She plants on her own land, which she bought with great effort. She is a responsible and hard-working person.

In order to expand and improve her production, she sees the need to request a loan to buy agricultural supplies and organic fertilizer. This way she will increase her income, which will improve her living conditions.
