A loan of $375 helped purchase quinoa.

Filomena's story

Filomena has been a member of the Communal Bank “Obreras” (Workers) for 10 years and what she likes most are the discipline of her group and the training that she receives. She is a widow with seven children, but now she lives alone with a grandson for whom she is responsible. Filomena travels to the fairs where she buys grains and later sells them at a stand at the Mariscal Cáceres Market. She also grows potatoes and grain on her land in Matara. Her wish is to expand her business.

Filomena needs a loan of 1000 PEN so that she can invest in the purchase of quinoa.
