A loan of $975 helped to purchase food for her animals so that her business can prosper.


Filomena's story

Filomena is a mother. She lives with her husband and her two-year-old son in her house in the hamlet of Bodegones, which is a rural area belonging to the Lambayeque district and which is approximately 45 minutes away. It is in Bodegones that she also carries out her work of breeding and selling animals.

Filomena has bred and sold young animals for more than ten years. In addition, she makes a living from agriculture, having a piece of crop land which, together with her husband, she sows with various staple crops, as well as some grains such as maize. These activities allow them to obtain income from various sources to support the family finances.

Filomena is requesting a loan of 2500 PEN to invest in the purchase of food for her animals, so that her business can prosper.

She is an honest and hard-working woman with good personal references from her neighbours. She thanks in advance the people who will help her with this loan.
