Nila Lourdes's story

Nila is 60 years old and lives together with her husband in one of the small villages that make up the rural part of the agricultural district of Tucume. The community has access to electricity and water. It is made up of approximately 200 families. They are humble people who have a desire to do well in life.

Nila's business is raising and selling young animals in her small village and in Tucume district. She has experience in her business and raises her animals in pens which are located near her home. She sells rams and pigs. She has the support of her husband who also farms and sells rice, mixed veg, etc.

Nila is requesting a loan for 3,000 soles which she plans to use to buy more rams, pigs and feed so that she can expand her business. She would also like to buy some sacks of rice so that she can support her husband's business. Nila has received previous loans from the institution and has shown herself to be a punctual and responsible client when it comes to making her repayments. Those who know her have a lot of respect and affection for her.
