Octavio Joaquin's story

Octavio V. is 60 years old, married, and lives in the city of Encarnación. He is the owner of a decoration and carpet store which he runs himself. He is a very hardworking person and thanks to the business that he has, they have been able to move forward and continue growing in their micro-business.


The business offers different services, since in addition to selling decorative items, he also makes room decorations for 15th birthday parties, children’s birthday parties, and weddings.


He thanks the Foundation and Kiva for the loan, since through this, he could purchase a few items that he was missing in the business such as the fabrics that they use for the decorations, such as vases, flowers, and others.
