Mario's story

Mario was born in the city of Cusco but he lives in the city of Salvación. (The city of Salvación is located in the district and province of Manu in the department of Madre de Dios, Peru).

Mario is 59 years old and separated, but he has four children. He is a hard-working and enterprising person who gets ahead and his main job is selling ceviche. He has a stall in one of the markets in the city of Salvación. He has had the business for several years now and it is going very well thanks to the effort he puts into his work. He belongs to the communal bank “Las Palmeras del Manu” and he requires the loan in order to buy supplies, such as lemon, onion, garlic, lettuce, corn, etc. He is grateful for the loan and promises to make his monthly repayments.
