Ranulfo's story

Ranulfo is 69 years old, has been married to Elva for 39 years, and they have 6 children together. Ranulfo is a man who strives to get things done and, in spite of his age, still has plenty of strength to make his store a success and to keep his family (who help him everyday.)
He is in charge of supplying his store. He brings everything he needs to replenish his stocks from the local market. He has a motorbike with a box mounted on it to transport his supplies. He is a person worthy of imitation. His wife comments that he sometimes feels tired but, when he sees his children grow-up and need help to be able to study, this helps him to feel strong and keep on fighting. He gives thanks for having good health and thanks Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for giving him the opportunity to keep progressing.
He is requesting the loan to buy food, drinks, vegetables, and other staple goods to supply his store.
