Neyler's story

Neyler lives in the province of Urubamba together with his wife and with their two beauitiful children. Neyler is a hard working man and he worked all the time so that he could provide his children with a better quality of life. Neyler opened a small store in Urubamba where he sold furniture and matresses. But 10 years ago he started to have back problems and he was forced to stop working. His wife Gladys took over having to provide for the family's expenses. She sells mens and ladies' shoes and second-hand clothing, popularly named by the public "American Clothes". Neyler is recovering and is doing better. He used his savings to open another business in the same locale where he used to sell furniture but now he sells name-brand ladies' shoes. Neyler started this business given the great demand. Visitors to Cusco spend their money to purchase name-brand ladies' shoes. He can be found in his store all 7 days of the week, from 9 in the morning until 8 at night. Neyler always portrays an image of kindness and happiness. A regular flow of clients visits his store because he sells quality products at reasonable prices. He wishes to receive a loan of S/.1500 nuevos soles. Currently his store is modestly stocked with merchandise. He will use the funds to pay the import taxes from Chile and Peru, countries where he purchases the shoes. Neyler is a new member of the Community Bank "Senor de Torrehchayoc". It is the first time that he takes part in the Community Bank, following an invitation from his wife, Gladys.
