Timotea
View original language description ↓
Timotea comes from a humble family. Several years ago, she decided to leave her home town, Chupa, in search of a better future. Since then, she has sold red meat as a traveling vendor in the Santa Bárbara market in the city of Juliaca. In addition to this work, she raises pigs, and she obtains extra income from their sale. While she is doing this work, her enterprising husband works as a mechanic. Both are looking to save up and to construct the house that they want so much to offer well-being and security to their five beloved children. Timotea's wish is to have a larger quantity of money to use as investment capital with the aim of selling a larger quantity of pigs, a business which has a lot of demand in this season. She is turning to your support and requesting a loan. Timotea is anxiously awaiting your response.
