Teodocia's story

Teodocia is a hard-working 60-year-old woman. She lives with her husband in the Yanque area, which is located in Chivay. She is a farmer and learned this work from her parents. She's been farming from quite a young age. As such, Teodocia wasn't able to finish her primary schooling because she worked to help her parents improve their quality of life.

She is requesting a loan to buy pea seeds to increase production and sales; she hopes to diversify her production and attract new clients.

Teodocia hopes to improve her financial situation in the future and continue enjoying good health.
