In this close-up, a woman in Peru weaves a scarf made from alpaca wool.
One of our team members took this photo during a recent trip to Huancayo, Peru, where Five Talents is planning to set up a branch office that will serve survival business owners selling vegetables and creating beautiful scarves, like this one, in the surrounding rural communities.
In places like Huancayo, micro-entrepreneurs have few options for financial services. Five Talents seeks to empower women and men by setting up savings and loan groups, providing low-interest loan capital, and organizing business training seminars with local partners.
