A loan of $375 helped to buy sheep.


Juliana's story

Juliana tends to a flock of about 20 sheep and earns a profit by fattening them and later selling them. She is 36 years old and married, with six children between the ages of 1 and 15. She has been raising sheep since she was a teenager, for about 20 years in total. During that time, she has been responsible for ensuring that her sheep are well fed and receive medication when they become sick. Juliana is requesting a loan in order to purchase more sheep. She would like to buy ten more sheep, and her dream is to continue expanding her flock and thereby earn more profits.

Juliana is a member of the village bank “Los Caminantes de Ocongate,” which is receiving its first loan from Asociación Arariwa. The group members live in a fairly remote rural community several hours outside of Cusco city, located at an altitude of 3,800 meters up in the Andean mountains.
