Juan Francisco's story

Juan Francisco was born in the city of Quillabamba, in Cusco department. He is 55 years old and has three children. He currently lives in Vilcabamba community, in Paucartambo province, in Cusco department.

Juan Francisco engages in a number of business activities such as carpentry, plumbing, farming, livestock raising, bakery, sales and other things besides. He has a small carpentry workshop in his home where he makes wooden furniture such as chairs, tables, desks, wardrobes, etc.

Juan Francisco learned the carpentry trade at a very young age as his grandfather taught him how to make furniture. He tells us, with a lot of nostalgia, that he used to paint, file and renovate the wood in his grandfather's workshop. He has been working in this business for several years and it is going very well thanks to the commitment that he puts into his work. Juan Francisco would like this loan to buy materials such as wood.

Juan Francisco is a member of Asociación Arariwa's "Mamacha del Carmen" community bank. The bank is in its third year and doing very well.
