Geraldo
Geraldo is 41 years old and has been married for more than 15 years. He has two children who are both now adults and have their own jobs.

Geraldo is a farmer's son and grew up in Carapeguá. He worked in the fields together with his father. When he was 26 years old, he married a weaver's daughter and they started working together. He has now been working for more than 15 years selling traditional bedspreads and hammocks which he sells in parts of Caaguazú and Ciudad del Este. He has a well-established customer base. His wife is a craftswoman and weaves blankets for him which work out cheaper. Thanks to this work and their joint efforts, the couple were able to build a beautiful house where they provided their family with a decent life.

Geraldo is requesting this loan to buy threads and dyes for weaving hammocks as his customers request a lot of them during this season.
