Ricardo's story

38-year-old Ricardo is married with three beautiful children. He was born in the city of Urubamba but currently lives in the district of Yucay in the Urubamba province. He is a carpenter and has a small carpentry workshop at home where he makes beautiful tables, chairs, wardrobes, desks and other furniture.

Ricardo requires this loan to buy materials for his business, such as wood. Her dream is to open his own store for the sale and exhibition of his wooden furniture in the city of Yucay.

Ricardo is a member of the communal bank "Nueva Visión de Rumichaca", made up of 19 members living in Urubamba province. Urubamba is located north of Cusco, along the Vilcanota River in an area known as the "Sacred Valley" due to its mild climate, fertile soil, and abundant streams, making this one of the most beautiful valleys in the world.
