Agostinho's story

Agostinho is 32 years old. He is in a common-law marriage. He is a merchant and the father of three young children, ages 12, 7 and 3.

He plans to use this loan to buy rice, oil, onions, potatoes, and mackerel for resale. He used previous loans for the same purpose.

His dream is to make progress with his business and to create other sources of income.

Translated from Portuguese by Kiva volunteer Kristin Fisher.
