Aparicio's story

Aparicio is from the city of Concepción. He is 36 years old and married to Nélida. Aparicio has had his auto repair shop in the city of Belén for more than 15 years.

According to what he tells us, he liked being a mechanic from the time he was a little boy, and from a very young age he already had gone to work as an assistant in his uncle's shop. Then, later, when he was a little older he set up his small shop in his parents' house. This business went very well for him because his father and brothers also helped him. Later he married and started his own family. He became independent and moved his shop to its current location. Now he is growing more every day. He has two assistants and also his oldest son, who also is already a great mechanic.

He is requesting help from Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya to buy tools with which he will be able to improve the service he offers his customers. He is grateful for the opportunity that is being given to him because in this way he will be able to continue growing.
