Estanislao's story

Estanilao is a member of the Virgen Asunta Communal Bank. He is from the Calca province in the department of Cusco, which is located one hour from the province of Cusco. He is 68, married, and has four children. The older children are grown and independent. The youngest child is studying in the university to be a civil engineer. The member needs a loan for his youngest son’s education and for family expenses. His youngest son studies in the city of Cusco. The member has to pay for his housing, books, food, transportation, clothes, and the materials the professors require his son to have. The member is grateful for the opportunity offered through this means. He promises to make his payments according to the timeline.
