Betzabe's story

Betzabe is 22 years old and, for two years, she has been selling artisanal products near the Incan ruins of Macchu Picchu, which receive many visitors every year. Betzabe also recently finished her degree in hotel administration. At the moment, she is requesting a loan in order to buy more merchandise such as jewelry, leather wallets, wooden crafts and ceramic cups and plates. Betzabe relies on suppliers in both Cusco and Lima. In the near future, Betzabe plans to open a restaurant serving Peruvian rotisserie chicken in collaboration with her brother and his girlfriend. Betzabe 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.
