A loan of $425 helped to purchase tools and parts for his motorcycle repair business.

Oscar Alcides's story

Oscar is 42 years old and married to Silvia who is 38. Together they have 3 children, ages 19, 17 and the youngest 12. The two older children are working and going to school, and help with some of the household costs. Oscar has a motorcycle repair shop, which he started more than 15 years ago. He rents a small place in the center of the city where he has gained many customers, and has everything needed to repair and maintain the bikes. He would like to continue to grow this business and is requesting a loan to purchase oil and various spare parts. This will help him manage his costs and continue to increase his income. Oscar appreciates the support that the Paraguayan Foundation has offered him, as well as Kiva.
