Elena's story

Elena, age 55, lives with her husband and children in the Caserío La Palma, Jaén - Perú. She is an enterprising women who, together with her husband, is getting ahead raising small animals like pigs, hens, and guinea pigs. They fatten them with balanced feed in order to later sell them. She also farms trout on a small scale, and she grows coffee.

Together with the unconditional support of her husband and with arduous work on the farm, they have managed to give their children a higher education. The last child is the only one left to educate. It is for their children that they sacrifice day to day in order to manage to see them become professionals.

The loan will be used to buy balanced feed and to build pens for raising poultry.
