Fortunato's story

Fortunato was born in the city of Quillabamba and has resided in the city of Salvación for 30 years. (Salvación is located in the district of Manu, in the province of Manu in the region of Madre de Dios, Peru.)

Fortunato is 52 years old and is in a common-law marriage, from which he has three children. He works in the public service and in his free time he works in his grocery store and lodge. It has already been many years since he started working in this business and it is going well thanks to the effort he puts into his work. For many years, he has belonged to the communal bank "Del Futuro del Manu" ["The Future of Manu"]. He needs this loan to buy merchandise such as, for example, bags of rice, bags of sugar, and other things. He appreciates and values the loan and promises to meet his monthly payments.
