A loan of $825 helped purchase silver.

Fanny Luz's story

Fanny is a member of the Communal Bank "Sacsayhuaman", which is part of Asociación Arariwa. She is 23 years old. This hardworking and enterprising young woman managed to open her own business selling handicrafts. She has a rented location near the Plaza Armas in Cusco where she sells products made of silver. Fanny has already been in this business for two years and has done very well because of the effort she puts into her work. Her earnings were impacted by the slump in tourism in the city of Cusco. The lack of tourists that resulted from the heavy rains during the months of January and February caused many businesses to shut down due to a lack of sales. However, Fanny is a determined young woman who pressed forward despite these adversities. She will use this loan to buy more silver. Her dream is to have her own shop so that she can sell more and generate additional income that will provide her a better quality of life.

Fanny is grateful for this opportunity and commits to making her payments on time.
