Rubén's story

Rubén is currently 28 years old, and has been a merchant for more than 6 years. At first, he started out working for a neighbor who paid him for each delivery of merchandise. With his small savings, as well as a loan from his supplier, he was able to buy his own merchandise and build a customer base to sell his products to. Thanks to the excellent quality of his merchandise, today he has a well-established customer base that is growing thanks to the recommendations of his own clients.

Rubén appreciates Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva’s support through the loan grants. Thanks to this assistance, he was able to attract more customers in other areas, and he saw his income grow. He plans to use the loan he is requesting to purchase threads.
