Blás comes from the city of Paraguarí. He is 54 years old, has worked in construction for over 40 years and also has an internet cafe. He is married to Vicenta, who is in charge of running the business. They have four children, which is why both he and his wife push themselves to the limit.

Blás tells us that he has made the sacrifice to work in a very difficult industry for 40 years, but thanks to the help of his wife and his family he was able to open an internet cafe, which gives him some extra income to put towards the household bills. Blás' dream is to continue expanding his business, which is why he has applied for a loan from Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya to pay for the maintenance of the computers in his internet cafe so that he can offer the best possible service to his customers.
