Carmen's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase handicrafts.
Carmen is a member of the Señor de la Agonía de Taray Communal Bank, located in the district of Taray, an hour away from Cusco. She is 34 years old, lives with her partner and has two children aged fourteen and five. She goes back and forth between her household activities and her handicrafts business. She sells her products to tourists at a scenic overlook in Taray, taking advantage of visitors stopping on their way to Calca, Pisac, Urubamba and Ollantaytambo and from there, continuing on to Machu Picchu. She needs a loan to purchase more handicrafts to sell. She is grateful for the loan and is committed to fulfilling her repayment obligations in the established timeframe.
