Huayrurpata Group's story

Carlos is the leader and representative of the "Huayrurpata" communal bank. It is made up of seven members, who are seen as a hard-working and very responsible group.

He is single and has a three year old son. For some time he has earned his living growing and selling cocoa. For this reason he wants to request a loan to maintain their farm, investing in fertilizer and weeding to avoid infestations and have a better cocoa product.

His main dream is to construct a house from solid materials. He wants to continue to increase his production of cocoa crops so his monthly income continues to improve. He is considered an early riser and a hard-worker.
