Leon's story

This borrower is one of the members of the Banco Comunal “Lideres del Tercer Milenio” (“Leaders of the Third Millenium” Communal Bank). He lives in Cusco, in the Huanchac neighborhood.

His name is León. He is 56 years old, he is single and he sells books for a living in the Santiago district. He has a stand in the local fair of this same district, where he sells books, magazines and literary works. He travels very often to Lima, but it’s his suppliers who generally bring him the books. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy a higher number of books and magazines.

He is thankful for and appreciates the help offered to him through this loan, and he commits to complying with repaying his debt within the specified time.
