Carlos Daniel's story

Carlos Daniel was born in the city of Cusco. He is 51, married and has two children.

Carlos Daniel lives in Valle Sagrado de los Incas in the city of Calca where he has a business processing coffee and chocolate. He travels to the city of Quillabamba in the Cusco forest and buys raw materials such as coffee and cocoa to make his products. He has been in business for five years and it is doing very well.

On this occasion Carlos Daniel needs a loan to buy more raw materials. His dream is to set up a business with new technology so he can produce different cocoa and coffee products.
