Americo Jose's story

Americo was born in the city of Salvación, but he lives in the same city where he was born. (The city of Salvación is located in the Manu district in the province of Manu, in the department of Madre de Dios, Peru.) Americo is 28 years old and is in a free union relationship from which he has two children. His principal business activity is buying and selling wood. He has worked in this business for a number of years, and it is going very well for him, thanks to the effort that he puts into his work. He is an entrepreneurial and hardworking person who belongs to the communal bank "Tesoritos del Manu" (Little Treasures of the Manu), and at this time he needs a loan to buy wood. He is grateful for and values the loan and promises to make his monthly payments.
