Filomena's story

Filomena is a member of the Capac Qoya communal bank. She is located in the Coya-Pisac district, 50 minutes from the city of Cusco.

Filomena is 46 years old, married, and has children who are 25, 24, 22, 19 years old. She alternates her household activities with retail sales. She raises chickens and pigs. She is very happy because her 3 children are already professionals and she is just finishing supporting the studies of the last of her children. She purchases poultry to sell the eggs, as well as chickens and pigs. She is requesting a loan to support her son in his studies and to also purchase more chickens.

Filomena is grateful for the opportunity provided to her and promises to make the loan repayments on time.
