Carmen's story

Carmen is 61 years old and lives with her husband in the District of Callayuc. This community has a climate that promotes the stunning green vistas. The people engage in agriculture, trade, and livestock breeding. This area is located in Cutervo Province, which is part of the region of Cajamarca in the northern mountains of Peru.

Carmen and her husband have been distilling aguardiente for 10 years. This beverage is traditional to the northern mountains of Peru on festival days, but it is also used as a curative remedy. Carmen is requesting a loan of 4,000 PEN so that she can purchase spare parts for her press and pay for renovations to her distillery. This will enable her to distill more product that she can offer to her customers.
