Anonymous's story

This borrower makes dairy products with the milk that her 15 cows produce. Right now, she is making cheeses and manjar (a caramel-like spread) to sell in local markets. A small container of manjar sells for $1 US, and a small mold of cheese sells for approximately 75 cents.

She is a native of Tambo Real, a rural community that is located in the Zurite district of Anta, approximately an hour and a half from the city of Cusco. She is 41 years old, married and has three children.

This borrower plans to use this loan to help finish building the house where she and her family reside. She will purchase cement, stones and blocks needed for construction.

She is a member of the Real Solidarity Bank, made up of 14 members who are in their second loan cycle with Arariwa. They are collectively committed to repaying the loan on time, and are also collaborating in a group savings account that serves as emergency funds for their members.
