Domitila's story

Domitila is 42 years old. She lives in the district of Niepos, located in San Miguel Province in Peru's northern mountain range, two hours from the city of Cajamarca. The population there works in agriculture and livestock.

Domitila earns her living knitting sweaters, shawls, and tops. She is known in her area for her business experience, and she also teaches classes to children in the community-based pre-school in her area.

She has requested a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles [PEN] to purchase wool materials and a knitting machine so that she can increase her business and generate a larger income for her family.
