Geraldine Odett's story

Geraldine belongs to a village bank called “Señor de Accha.” The bank is located in Pisac, a district of Calca province in the Cusco department. Geraldine is 20 years old and single. She earns a living by selling souvenirs and artisan products at the local handicrafts market, which is very popular among tourists heading to Macchu Picchu. Geraldine’s stand sells a variety of unique and colorful crafts, including alpaca knits and woven textiles, some of which are made by local indigenous groups.

Geraldine is requesting a loan in order to buy handicrafts for her stand. She hopes to expand her business with the loan and is committed to repaying her lenders.
