Solema
View original language description ↓
Solema is a woman who works raising livestock. She developed this skill as a child alongside her parents, and now it helps her meet household expenses. Solema raises her animals with great dedication in order to later sell their meat in town. She also meets certain special requests that she receives from the city, and these offer her the best income. In order to be sure of good earnings, since she is aware that the cost of living is increasing, Solema wants to acquire a few more animals in order to increase her income and the amount of her livestock. In order to accomplish this she needs a sum of 1300 soles ($475 US), money that she hopes you will be able to help loan.
