Manuel is 31 years old. He lives with his partner Ani, in the house they are finishing little by little in the city of Carapeguá.
He has worked as a bricklayer since he was 18. As he didn't have many opportunities to study, he saw that this profession could give him a good future. His neighbours admire his helpful spirit, his honesty and entrepreneurship.
He requests a loan to buy some tools as the ones he has are old and worn out and don't help him much in his work.
He appreciates the help he is receiving from Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya.
Manuel tiene 31 años, vive en pareja con Ani, en su casa la cual está terminando de a poco en la ciudad de Carapeguá.
Desde sus 18 años trabaja como albañil, ya que no tenía tantas oportunidades para el estudio y vio que esta profesión le podía dar un buen futuro. Los vecinos le tienen gran admiración por el espíritu servicial que posee, rescatando su honestidad y emprendedurismo.
Solicito el crédito para la compra de algunas herramientas, ya que las que posee están viejas y desgastadas y no le ayuda mucho en su trabajo. Agradece a la fundación y a kiva por la ayuda que esta recibiendo.
