Luis Alberto's story

Luis is 32 years old, separated from his wife, and lives in the center of the city of Caacupe, some 60 kilometers from the capital city of Asuncion. He has 2 boys and 1 girl, all of school age.

Luis has operated a fish store from his home for 2 years. He requests a loan to buy a freezer for storing fish. With this, he will be able to acquire a larger quantity of fish and keep them fresher until final sale.

Luis is grateful to the Paraguay Foundation and Kiva for their help with his activity, because by this means he will be able to offer his clientèle good service and the best product on the market.
