A loan of $1,475 helped pay to maintain his machines, vehicles, and water pumps.

Javier's story

Javier is from the city of Lambaré. He is married, but they haven't yet had the good fortune of having children. He is the owner of an aguatería (private water provider) called "La Alborada" (Dawn), which is located in the city of San Antonio.

He inherited his aguatería in 2008 along with land in the area. At that time, he had about 90-130 users.

Currently, more than 300 families partake of his water distribution network. This is because the region where he lives is being divided up and the population is gradually increasing. Thanks to this service, he is helping people have access to this service, which is needed because water access is so important.

He has experience in this type of business. In addition to giving him income, he helps satisfy the basic need of access to drinking water to the population of his region.

Javier is asking for this loan so he can maintain his machines and water pump motors for his distribution network. In this way, he can continue with his work and provide help to his community.
