Paulo Cesar's story

Paulo belongs to the Señor de Huanca Communal Bank. This communal bank is located in the Calca district, Calca province, Cusco department.

Paulo, age 33, is married and has one child. Paulo is a native of Calca. He worked as a laborer on the inter-oceanic highway, finishing the section of the Cusco Puerto Madonado route to Brazil.

Now, with his savings, he has purchased his first four motorcycles to sell. He is requesting the loan to buy paint and oil to service the motorcycles and sell them. This way he will work in this business in a steadfast way. Paulo is requesting the loan to buy oil and other things for maintenance on the motorcycles in order to sell them.

He is grateful to those who are making this dream possible, and he pledges to make his payments on time.
