Sr. Oscar is 51 years old and works as a shoemaker. He is married to Sra. Lourdes, age 41, and they have a five year old son.


The couple has been managing a shoe store for more than ten years. Sr. Oscar learned this trade from his parents. He is now a professional shoemaker and produces his own brand of shoes called “IVAN”, which was launched with great effort and with the help of his wife. Oscar produces high-end shoes for women, men, and school children.


He is requesting a loan from Fundación Paraguaya in order to buy all types of basic supplies for making shoes such as genuine leather, imitation leather, adhesives, rubber, solvents, and other items.
