José's story

José, 57, lives with Rosa in a very crowded neighborhood in the city of Itá. They have just one son who helps him with his work. José owns a truck that he uses to transport bricks that he buys in the city of Tobati and sells in the cities of Asunción, Fernando de la Mora and neighboring areas to contractors, architects and occasional customers; he’s been in business more than 15 years. He also transports soy beans into the interior of the country.

He’s a very hardworking, tenacious man who has worked his entire life to give his family the best. He’s asking for the loan to buy some covers he needs to transport the soy bean loads. He thanks the Fundación and Kiva for the opportunity he’s receiving.
