Ruben's story

Ruben lives in Cusco, the same city where he was born. He is 25 years old and is in a common-law relationship from which he has one child. His business is selling hardware and he has a small stand on one of the main avenues of Cusco. He belongs to the “Señor de Huanca Nueva” Communal Bank of the Arariwa Association in Cusco. At this time, he is requesting the loan to purchase merchandise such as cables, lightbulbs, paint, and other items. He has been in this business for several years and it is going well.
