A loan of $400 helped to buy men's polo shirts and trousers.

Lucio's story

Lucio, 53, is married to Paulina and has 5 children, two of whom are hard-working and independent people. Lucio sells clothes at a stall in his local market. When he started his business, he had very little merchandise but he managed to increase his stock little by little. He counts on the support of his wife and children at times when he can't stay in his shop.

His aim is to keep working, with the motivation that it allows him and his family to achieve a full future with their business and because he wants to open a branch in his home, hoping to improve his family's financial situation. This is his first Kiva loan and he is very grateful for the support he is receiving so he is committed to making his repayments punctually.

He would like to borrow 1000 PEN and invest it buying more men's polo shirts and trousers as they are in demand.
