Primitiva's story

Primitiva and her husband own a carpentry workshop, where they produce wooden furniture, doors, and windows, mostly for construction projects. While her husband handles the heavy machinery, Primitiva helps with finishing activities such as sanding, lacquering, and painting. The couple have developed their business over the past 15 years, and together they are raising six children between the ages of 8 and 26. Primitiva is requesting a loan in order to purchase wood for the carpentry business. She hopes that she will be able to reinvest her profits in additional equipment such as a band saw.

Primitiva 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.
