Victor Manuel's story
Victor is 29 years old and runs a multi-service internet shop with his brother while attending classes at the school of fine arts. The shop offers internet, photocopying, and printing services, and Victor has been working there for about a year. He is requesting a loan in order to purchase an additional computer, as his shop currently has only five computer stations. In the future, Victor would like to invest in gaming machines such as a PlayStation so that his business can offer additional services. In the long run, Victor is dedicated to mastering his studies of sculpture and painting so that he can start a business producing and selling ceramics. Victor is a member of the village bank "Los Amistosas" in Urcos, which is receiving its fifth loan from Asociación Arariwa. Urcos is located about one hour outside of Cusco in the Andean mountains of Peru.
