Blas
Blas is 27, single, and he and his partner have a child who is only a few months old. Blas says that since he was a boy he has always worked in a motorcycle shop where he learned about the business. Years later, and thanks to help from family, he was able to get together enough capital to start his own business. Approximately three years ago he set up his repair shop to offer customers an easier, quicker repair service for their motorcycles.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy more spare parts so he can offer more variety to his customers. He is grateful to the Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for this opportunity, as it will be of great help to him.
