Maria Luisa's story

Maria Luisa has a business selling cheese. She purchases the cheese from local producers near her hometown and then brings it to Macchu Picchu to sell. Macchu Picchu is the famous Incan citadel located several hours away from Maria Luisa's hometown. The ancient ruins attract many tourists throughout the year, ensuring that Maria Luisa will be able to find customers in the busy community that has sprung up around the area. A loan will help Maria Luisa purchase more cheese at wholesale prices. Maria Luisa is receiving an individual loan as a member of the village bank “Solidaridad-Ccachimayo,” which is in its 17th cycle with Asociación Arariwa.
