Teolinda's story

Teolinda is a 50-year-old woman. She is a widow and supports only 1 child, since the others are already independent. Her house is her own, and it is made of semi-rustic material. It is located on her plot of farmland, which has mango and lime trees. She harvests these every week, generating income. Her home is located in the Hualtaco II settlement, which is 8 kilometers from Tambogrande. She has electricity service but no water or sewer connections.

The work that the borrower does is running a business raising animals such as turkeys and chickens. She also sells limes which she harvests from her plot of land each week, generating income with which she will be able to pay off the present loan.

The amount of the loan she is requesting is 1500 Peruvian new soles, and she is requesting it to buy feed for her birds and make improvements to their enclosure, in order to keep expanding her business. In this way, she will generate more dividends and grow her business, making herself better known in the area and attracting more customers.
