Peru’s economy is one of the fastest growing in all of the Americas, but not everyone is benefiting. Kallarisunchis understands that and is doing something about it. Based in Cusco, Kallarisunchis is reaching out to aspiring micro-entrepreneurs in the Andean villages surrounding Cusco to empower the indigenous peoples, especially women, and help them qualify for a micro-loan. Beyond microfinance services, they are also reaching children with an after school program that allows them to learn to save and hear the good news that God loves them along with programs that empower young entrepreneurs and the elderly.
