A loan of $775 helped to buy books.

Graciela's story

Graciela has a bookstore where she sells books and stationery. A loan will help her purchase more books from wholesalers in downtown Cusco. She is 35 years old and has three children with her partner. In the future, she hopes to save enough money to buy a car. Graciela says that she enjoys attending her village bank’s monthly meetings at Asociación Arariwa. She thinks that the loans are important because the financial support allows her and her fellow group members to continue working.

Graciela is receiving an individual loan as a member of the village bank "Vallecito" in Cusco, which is located close to the Incan ruins of Macchu Picchu in the Andean mountains. The bank is in its 17th cycle with Asociación Arariwa.
