Filemon's story

Filemon is 54 years old and lives in the town of Chimore, in the province of Carrasco and the city of Cochabamba. He is married to Graciela, and they have two children. Filemon is working in the sales of natural medicine, growing plantains, chicken sales, and the sales of citrus fruits. Meanwhile, his spouse sells groceries. He didn't have enough income to support his family, so he went to his spouse and they decided they could try again and together they set a new course for their life's path and started over from zero.

The loan that Filemon is asking for is for the construction of a shed for raising pigs and to buy a water pump, and in this way he will make a profit and be able to help his children to finish their schooling. He dreams of a better future for his children, since he was never able to finish advanced schooling, but he hopes that his children will finish their schooling and be able to help people in their neighborhood.
