Flor Violeta's story

Every thirty days the members of the communal bank "Todos Unidos" (Everyone United) meet in the central offices of the Asociación Arariwa in Cusco, Perú. The department of Cusco, whose capital is the city of Cusco, has been known for many years as the "Architectural Capital of America".

In this communal bank, we meet Flor Violeta. She is 36 years old and lives happily with her partner. For 12 years Flor Violeta and her partner, Washington, have run a small printing press in a rented shop. The shop is called "D’ Gráficos" (D' Graphics). They have four people that work in the printing shop. Flor Violeta has been a member of the communal bank for a few years and she likes it because, thanks to the loans, she is growing her business daily. This time, Flor Violeta needs the loan to purchase more inputs, such as paper and ink. Her dream is to own the shop location and to buy an offset printing machine.
