Edgar used to help his father on a farm in the middle of the country. Around 6 years ago he decided to move with his uncles to the central zone and work as a traveling salesperson. He started off helping one of his uncles, loading and offloading the merchandise that they sold. A year and a half ago, with the help of his uncles, Edgar decided to buy his own truck and sell his own products.

The loan that he is requesting from Fundación Paraguaya is for the purchase of merchandise. In the future, Edgar plans to trade in his truck for a newer model.

Hasta que hace aproximadamente 6 años se decidió venir con sus tíos a la zona central y dedicarse a la macateria.
