Lucila Petronila's story

Señora LUCILA PETRONILA G. P. D. D. is 49 years old, and lives in the Moche district of Trujillo province, in the La Libertad region of Peru. She is a member of the communal bank San Borja. She completed studies up through the 3rd year of secondary education; she did not finish because she married very young. She has 5 children, 2 of whom are economically dependent upon her because they are in school. She raises livestock, including cows, pigs, and sheep.

With her first loan of 300 nuevos soles, she bought pigs and sheep to raise and then later sell. With this loan of 2300 nuevos soles, she will also buy pigs, cows and sheep. Lucila dreams of increasing her livestock business so that she can have increased earnings and can continue to support her children so that they can finish their studies at the university.
