Mr. Pedro C. T. is a native of Pilcopata, located in the Kosñipata district of the Paucartambo province, department of Cusco. His town is near the entrance of the Manu National Park, located some 8 hours from the city of Cusco.

Here we have our client, who asked for permission at work so that he could attend the microfinance institute’s meeting. I joined him at his workplace, which was in front of the meeting place, so I took a picture of him while he was in the middle of work. Mr. C. has a wife and 2 children, ages 13 and 12. He is a construction worker who is known as “El Constructor.” He needs a loan so that he can establish his own general store, which his wife will manage. They hope to set up their business and purchase large quantities of goods, such as cooking oil, noodles, flour, wheat, potatoes, corn and other products that are not produced in the area, which is why they are requesting this loan.

Our client is very happy and values the loan that he has been given, committing himself to pay off his loan.
