Mr. Celedonio V. lives in the city of Fernando de la Mora and is married to Mrs. Gregoria Genez, with whom he has several children who all live outside of the home. Celedonio works as a carpenter and makes furniture. He sells his furniture in the capital as well as in the interior of the country. He started working as a carpenter around 1991, and began saving a little bit of capital. As time went on and he got better at his work, Celedonio had to invest more and more in his business. Due to this need for support, he introduced himself to the Fundación Paraguaya and applied for credit. The credit he has now is for the purchase of merchandise and raw materials.
