Gaspar's story

Gaspar is 44 years old and married with four children. He has a kiosk that he started in 2017 where many people come to buy goods every day. Running his business has made Gaspar independent and helped him provide a better life for his family.

He would like a loan of $1500 from KIF to help improve his kiosk. He plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies such as Fanta, Coca-cola, Sagiko, beer, cigarettes, sugar, coffee, slippers and noodles.

Gaspar hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity. And he has animals like pork and chicken as an extra business.
