Leocadio's story

Leocadio is 53 years old and lives with his wife in the city of Ybycui. Leocadio has a store with a good array of merchandise. He explained that he began this activity with his wife some 10 years ago, originally opening a small stall where they sold stuffed buns and drinks. Thanks to their good service, they grew day by day. At present, they sell fruit and vegetables, and supply these to nearby companies. He can now count on an established clientele. Leocadio is requesting a loan to buy food supplies, drinks, milk products, garden vegetables, and other products, which are in much demand in his store. He is grateful to the Foundation and to Kiva for the opportunity it offers.
