Frit's story

Frit belongs to the communal bank “PADRE URRACA.” This bank is located in the District of Huanchac, Province and Department of Cusco. Frit is 50 years old and married with 5 children. He has worked mainly in agriculture his entire life. He is also taking a course in carpentry and has a lot of machinery. But his love for politics and equality for all people has led him to enter politics and lead a group of irrigation workers in Southern Peru. Jose is an innate politician and today he is running for mayor in the city of Cusco. He has an excellent sense of humor and has revolutionary ideas and believes in justice for all. He also stated that he's been in the communal bank for nine years and always comes to the meetings because he likes to socialize with old friends. Frit is requesting a loan to increase his capital and purchase a field. He is grateful for the loan offered through this organization and promises to complete his payments as scheduled.
