Alejandro's story

Alejandro is 56 years old and has three children. He was born in the department of Madre de Dios and currently lives in Cusco. Alejandro is a carpenter and works independently. He has a small workshop in his home where he builds wooden furniture, such as closets, beds, chairs, and living room sets. At this time, Alejandro needs a loan to buy materials such as lacquer, wood, nails, cloth, glue, and sandpaper. His dream is for his workshop to grow larger every day. Alejandro belongs to the “Inti Pakareq” communal bank of the Asociación Arariwa. He is grateful for the opportunity provided by this organization, and promises to make his payments according to the schedule.
