A loan of $575 helped to buy sugar, flour, lard, and other things.


Oswaldo's story

Oswaldo is 38 years old. He is in a common-law relationship and has two children. He was born in and lives in the town of Oropesa, 30 minutes from the city of Cusco. He has been making "Orpesa" bread at a bakery from a young age, but the shop is rented. He is an enterprising and hard-working man, who has been invited to participate in the “Virgen Asunta de Oropesa” communal bank of Asociación Arariwa. On this occasion, Oswaldo needs the loan to buy ingredients for making more Orpesa bread, so he is going to buy sugar, flour, lard, and other things. Oswaldo is grateful for the loan and promises to pay his installments in accordance with the repayment schedule.
