Vitorino currently lives in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, in the city of Calca and this is where he carries out his business activities. Vitorino is a carpenter. He makes all kinds of wooden furniture such as doors, desks, wardrobes, tables, chairs, beds and many other items. On this occasion, he needs a loan to buy materials such as wood, nails, wood glue, etc. The 'Milenium III' community bank meets once a month in the city of Calca, in Cusco department (Peru). Cusco is well known for being a very touristy, commercial area. It is also known for its traditional Inti Raymi festival and because it is home to one of the seven wonders of the world (Machu Picchu).
