Faustino's story

Faustino, 67, is a widower and has two children. He belongs to Asociación Arariwa’s “Esmeralda” (Emerald) communal bank. He’s originally from the city of Acomayo but lives in the beautiful city of Cusco. He’s a hardworking, responsible father who supports his family. He repairs shoes; he has a small workshop equipped with the basics. On this occasion, Faustino needs the loan to buy work supplies like soles, leather, thread, shoe polish and others. Faustino is grateful for the opportunity provided by this means and commits to make his payments as scheduled.
