A loan of $1,125 helped to buy basic need items and medicine for the animals she heals.

Nelida's story

Nélida, 39, is a responsible woman. Her life centers around helping her parents, Epifania and Isidoro, who are aged and she cares for in her own house located in the Tambo neighborhood. Her calm and rather serious expression is the result of her struggle to get ahead.

She completed a technical veterinary career with much effort because she had economic limitations. That didn’t stop her, though; she worked hard to attain her goal. Now, she treats any sick animal, a service she provides to her zone’s residents as well as to customers in other areas who know about Nélida’s skill thereby earning extra income.

However, since she’s an enterprising woman, she also opened a home-based grocery store where she sells basic need items, especially vegetables and foodstuffs, which are the food items she sells the most. She’s had the store for three years and she hopes to enlarge it and turn it into a large, well-stocked store. She also wants to continue to study. “One never stops learning,” she affirms.

She belongs to the “San Martín de Porres” communal bank and this is the 10th MFP loan where she feels very grateful for all the support through the years. She also promises to be very punctual with her installment payments. If Nélida were to receive your support, she will use the requested money to buy basic need items for her store and medicine to heal the animals she treats.
