A loan of $575 helped to buy cows.


Ramon's story

Ramon dedicates himself to two primary economic activities: agriculture and construction. In addition to cultivating fields of potatoes, Ramon has worked as a construction worker for about 20 years. Ramon is 34 years old and married with three children who are 11, 12, and 14 years old. He is requesting a loan in order to purchase cows, which he plans to fatten over one to two months then sell at a profit. He dreams of building a successful business raising cattle and thereby provide his family with another income stream.

Ramon is a member of the village bank “Sr. de Ccoylloritty de Ocongate,” which is receiving its eighth 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.
