A loan of $900 helped purchase chickens to raise.

Leonel's story

Leonel is a member of the Communal Bank “Nueva Vision de Urubamba” (New Vision of Urubamba). He lives in the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Urubamba, located an hour and ten minutes away from the city of Cusco.

Leonel is 36 years old, in a common law marriage, and has two children (ages 14 and 3). He has a small business in which he sells clothing shipped in from Lima. Now he wants to raise chickens and sell them when they mature. Leonel says this new business will be profitable because he has studied the market and has already lined up buyers. He is requesting a loan in order to buy chickens.

Leonel is appreciative of this opportunity and promises to make his payments on time.
