Filomena's story

Filomena is a member of the We are Leaders village bank. She is 42 years old, married, and has two children aged 13 and 19. Her eldest child is studying to be a physical therapist and her youngest is in public school.

Filomena is from Puno. She studied sewing briefly in Lima, but was unable to finish her studies as she cannot speak Spanish very well. Filomena speaks Aymara, but no one in Lima speaks this dialect. In addition, she has trouble speaking and her friends criticize the way she speaks. Filomena worked in various areas until her aunt advised her to start raising pigs. Raising pigs is profitable, does not take all day, and buyers are always available.

Filomena is requesting a loan of 2000 PEN to buy feed for the pigs and sacks of sweet potatoes. Her dream is to buy a car and rent it out to earn more income.
