Santiago's story

Sr. Santiago is a member of the Communal Bank “Ollantay de Wayracpuncu” which is located in Urubamba Province, Department of Cusco.

He is 47 years old, married, and has one daughter. Santiago is a farmer who grows corn and potatoes. He exports white corn and produces it by purchasing the seeds for planting and fertilizing his crops prior to selling the grain in bulk and in smaller quantities. On this occasion, he wants to invest the money from his loan in the improvement of his home. Some interior repairs are needed and he needs the capital to cover the expenses. Santiago is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of materials for these home repairs.

He is very grateful for the loan and promises to complete his payments in a disciplined manner.
