Gustavo's story

Gustavo is 34 years old and lives in a house in the city of Paraguarí. He is married to Agustina, 37, who is an employee of Crisvil. They have two children, the eldest of whom is 14 years old and the younger, one year old.

Gustavo devotes himself to making dress pants and Bermuda shorts, which he subsequently distributes in various of our country's cities. He comments that, thanks to his dogged efforts, along with the excellent quality of the products he makes, he has successfully paved the way for himself and become known, which has allowed him to grow little by little in his business.

On this occasion Gustavo turned to the foundation and to Kiva to apply for a loan, which he will use for the purchase of a sewing machine in order to expand his workshop, and so to continue growing as a business owner.
