Derlis's story

Derlis is 38 years old and married to Myrian. They live in the city of Caacupé. Derlis makes a living producing and selling men's, women's, and children's shoes. He is a hardworking man and his shoes are in high-demand, even in other cities.

Derlis is requesting this loan from Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva in order to buy raw materials, such as leather, needed to produce his shoes. The season with the highest volume of orders is coming up and Derlis wishes to be ready to satisfy all of his customers' orders, so that he can obtain more income for his family.
