Dionicio's Story

Dionicio is 51 years old and never attended school. He is married and his wife works in retail. Together, they have three children. 

Dionicio works selling fruits and vegetables out of his car. He has an established route for his sales and he starts early in the morning and goes until he has sold all of his merchandise. He also makes trips when someone requests it.

He previously received a Kiva loan but he has already paid it off. He is seeking a new loan to purchase cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, pineapples, watermelon, onions, etc. to continue making his sales.

He dreams of being able to provide his family with all of their needs and to teach his children to earn an honest living.
