Julia's story

Julia is a long-time client of Asociación Arariwa. In her tenth year working with Arariwa, Julia is now 46 years old and married with three children. She dedicates herself to a business buying and selling grains such as quinoa, wheat, barley and corn. She purchases the products from farmers in Ocongate and sells them in Cusco and Sicuani, which are each about three hours away from Ocongate. Julia travels four times a month to transport merchandise. She is requesting a loan in order to buy more grains. She says that she dreams of having a nice house one day.

Julia 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.
