Vidal
View original language description ↓
Mr. Vidal is 55 years old, married, and the owner of a carwash in the area of Loma de Caacupé. He's had this business for more than 12 years and his main partner and assistant is his son, Javier B., with whom he starts the the very early hours of the day, attending customers. Vidal comments that he and his son divide the tasks of doing more than washing cars- they provide car maintenance service, oil changes, and sell auto tires.


Fundación Paraguaya offered him the loans, which allowed him to grow his business and buy the necessary tools and modern equipment to meet the most demanding requests of his customers. Vidal is very satisfied that his only son is the one that is helping his business succeed, since this also allows him to become closer with his son and teach him the business as well.


One of his medium term goals is to increase the variety of services, which are currently incorporated into the prices of auto spare parts that he sells. For this, he needs more capital and currently seeks a loan.
