Hilda is a member of the Bancomunial Medalla Milagrosa Society. Hilda is 32-years old and lives with her two children who are 10 and 4 years old respectively. They are in private school and her oldest son has a learning disability. He is hyperactive and was left back in the state schools; it’s for this reason that she has placed him in private school.


Hilda is from Huanuco and about 15-years ago she escaped from her house to go work in Lima, where she is employed as a maid; it has been good for awhile. She continued to work, selling chicken broth as an assistant to her boss, but felt she could make more money selling chicken broth on her own. It has been five years in the making and now she needs two people to help her. Her kids help out during their vacation time and her husband is a mason


With this loan she would like to raise a kitchen to sell salchi, fries, and also noodles and eggs. Hilda’s dream is to start a restaurant and have a proper house.
