Benedicta Aurentina's story

Benedicta Aurentina lives in the neighborhood of La Sequita, a place with humble and hard-working people who, thanks to their work, are able to provide for their families.

She is a hard-working woman who is able to earn an income through her work. She runs a small pharmacy in her house where she sells a good quantity of medicines that her customers need. She also raises pigs and chickens, for which she has a small farm in her house. She raises the chickens until they have gained enough weight and then sells them to merchants or neighbors.

She will use this loan to buy medicine to stock her pharmacy and food for her chickens and pigs. Her dream is to improve her pharmacy.
