A loan of $1,100 helped to buy wood.


Abel's story

This member belongs to the "GRANITO DE MOSTAZA" communal bank which is located in the district of Huanchac in the province and department of Cusco.

Mr. Abel, 41, is single and has four children, ages 11, 9, 5 and 4. He is a carpenter by trade and is requesting a loan to buy wood for his business. He has been running a shop for 18 years and he has many customers. He often runs out of wood because of all the orders he has, so he wants to buy wood by the cubic foot, wholesale, in order to avoid this problem.

He is grateful for the loan and committed to paying it back on time.
