Mario's story

Mario, 57, has been running a store in the city of San Lorenzo since 2006. He says he has a good number of customers because he serves them well and always offers good prices. Through his work he has been able to renovate his house and give his children the education they needed to become independent, as they now are. His goal is to continue working to become a grand merchant. He is requesting a loan to buy sugar, bakery goods, dairy products, meat and other types of products. He is grateful for this opportunity Kiva and the Fundación Paraguaya are giving him, because it will be of much assistance.
