A loan of $425 helped to buy tools.


Manuel's story

Manuel is 31 years old. He lives with his partner Ani, in the house they are finishing little by little in the city of Carapeguá. He has worked as a bricklayer since he was 18. As he didn't have many opportunities to study, he saw that this profession could give him a good future. His neighbours admire his helpful spirit, his honesty and entrepreneurship. He requests a loan to buy some tools as the ones he has are old and worn out and don't help him much in his work. He appreciates the help he is receiving from Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya.
