Alex Jhon
The Communal Bank “Vamos Juntas” (We Go Together) meets every 30 days in the city of Cusco, which is known in the region for being a tourist and commercial area. It is also known for the traditional festival of Inti Raymi and for being the home of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu.


It is here that the staff of Asociación Arariwa met with Sr. Alex Jhon, who was born in the city of Cusco. He is 31 years old, married, and has two children. Alex said the following:


“At the moment, I live in the city of Cusco and this is where I conduct my activities. I am an artisan who produces paintings, works made of plastic, and many other items. I have a small workshop in my home that is equipped with canvases, paints, oils, and other materials. I have already been in this business for 15 years and have done very well. My dream is to export or exhibit my works in the United States so that people can discover my talent.”
