The participant is Mr. Ever G., 23, accompanied by Mrs. Alicia, 30. They have a newborn son and live in a house owned by their parents. They also have their own land, on which they are building a house.
Mr. Ever began working very young, and worked for someone else for approximately two years until he realized that he could not excel. He then became self-employed, and has been working for four years selling clothing and footwear for women, men and children. He has been selling throughout the Encarnación and Cambyreta area, and the business is going pretty well.
The loan will go toward the purchase of seasonal goods to sell. As the cold season is coming, he needs jackets and pullovers, and does not want to lose any clients.
