A loan of $800 helped to purchase supplies for his pantry.


Eligio's story

Mr. Eligio has been married to Ms. Porfiria for a number of years, and they have one child who is the motive for the couple's hard work. Together they set up a pantry in their home, which is in Ciudad del Este. They started out with a small amount of capital obtained from other jobs they had worked previously as salaried employees. Thanks to the work they are doing, they have paid for their son's education and purchased the household's needs. Mr. Eligio, in addition to the pantry, works as a security guard at a service station in his community. Eligio is seeking the loan for the purchase of groceries, beverages and other supplies needed for stocking his business. He thanks the foundation and Kiva for the opportunity he has received.
