Aquilina
42-year-old Aquilina is a responsible woman. She lives with Eliazar, her husband of 20 years, and the couple have two children: Kelvin and Lizbeth. They care for their children in a house that they inherited 12 years ago.

While Aquilina's husband works as a laborer in a brick factory, where they pay him for every 1,000 bricks he makes, Aquilina's business is buying and selling livestock. This is where they make the most profit. Aquilina buys sheep, bulls and cows when they are very young, raises and feeds them, then sells them in the local markets in the city. She has a lot of experience in this line of work. She says that she charges a very good price for her animals and, if people don't pay her what she asks, she takes the animals home again, continues feeding them, and puts them up for sale again later so that she can make a good profit. "I can't sell my animals for too little. I have to be smart", she says. Aquilina and her husband would like to rent a large plot of land, where they can set up their own brick factory, so that he can work in his own business and no longer have to work for other people.

Aquilina will invest the 2,000 soles she has requested in buying a number of sheep. If she has enough money left over, she will also buy a cow. She is grateful for the financial support that she is receiving as it allows her to achieve her goals. She pledges to be punctual in making her loan repayments.
