Gabino's story

The communal bank "Andrés Avelino Caceres" is composed of responsible persons and workers that are moving their families forward. The majority of the members live in the city of Cusco where they practice their economic activities. Cusco is known for being a zone for tourism and commerce because of its traditional festival of Inti Raymi and because one can find one of the seven wonders of the world "Machupicchu" there.

Gabino is 63 years old, is married, and the fruit of this beautiful relationship is his three children. He was born in the district of Sicuani of the Canchis province section of Cusco, but he lives in the pretty city of Calca. Gabino's primary economic activity is the sale of knitted artisan crafts . He sells his products on the street in the cities of Calca, Pisaq and Ollantaytambo. 10 years have passed during which he has dedicated himself to this business and it is going very well. For this opportunity, Gabino requires a loan to buy mechandise like, for example, blankets, scarves and hats.
