Arturo's story

Quillabamba is the capital city of the La Convención province. It is an important commercial center for the Lares and La Convención valleys. Its primary business activities are the production of coca, coffee, cacao, and fruits.

Arturo is 28 years old, and he has one child. He was born in the city of Quillabamba, La Convección province, Cusco, Perú. However, he now lives in the city of Echarate, which is an hour from the city of Quillamba (La Convención, Cusco).

He has a small family business, which consists of selling hardware. The business has been operational for one year. It is going very well for him thanks to the effort he puts into his work.

On this occasion he needs a loan to buy materials and tools like guides, paint, carpenters’ glue, and other things.
