Daniel Omar
Daniel Omar is a 24-year-old chef in a touristic restaurant in Cusco. He prepares dishes that are both international and regional in nature. He has had this job for more than two years and says that one of his favorite dishes to prepare is Peruvian ceviche (a seafood dish typically made of fresh raw fish marinated in citric juices).

In addition, Daniel Omar and his girlfriend have been running a business, selling artisanal handicrafts for three years. A loan will help him purchase more merchandise from Cusco and Lima such as woven earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

Meanwhile, Daniel Omar is also collaborating with his sister to open a restaurant serving Peruvian rotisserie chicken near the popular tourist attraction of Macchu Picchu. In the future, Daniel would like to open a restaurant where he can serve both Peruvian and international cuisine.

Daniel Omar is receiving an individual loan as a member of the village bank "El Sr de los Temblores III" in Cusco, which is located in the Andean mountains at 3,400 meters above sea level. The bank is in its first cycle with Asociación Arariwa, although some group members were previously members of other village banks.
