Gerardo
Gerardo is 21 years old and runs a small computer repair business with his brother. They do not have a formal shop. Rather, clients contact them when they have problems and make arrangements to bring the equipment to the brothers. At the same time, Gerardo is studying orthodontics, a degree which takes about 5.5 years to complete. Gerardo is requesting a loan to purchase computer repair equipment such as cables and memory cards. In the future, he would like to open a stand where he can offer technical services.

Gerardo is receiving an individual loan as a member of the village bank "El Sr de los Temblores III" in Cusco, which is located in the Andean mountains at 3,400 meters above sea level. The bank is in its first cycle with Asociación Arariwa, although some group members were previously members of other village banks.
