A loan of $300 helped to buy fishing nets for his business.

Antonio's story

Antonio is a hard-working 69-year-old man. He is married and lives with his family in Huarmey. His main motivation in life is his family, and since he was young he has fought to give them a better future. He has been working in fishing for the last 30 years, and he has always done well because he is a very hard-working and responsible person and because he has been able overcome life's difficulties. Antonio is grateful to the Kiva lenders because with their help he will be able to buy fishing nets, as his current nets are worn out. If he catches more fish, he will increase his income and he will keep striving to improve his family's quality of life.
