Antonio
View original language description ↓
Sr. Antonio Q., 41, is separated and has a 4-year old daughter, his little companion at work and home. He buys goods for low prices at sales in Ciudad del Este or Asuncion and sells them around Coronel Oviedo.


Antonio has problems walking because of a road accident but that doesn't stop him from selling his merchandise across a wide area or earning what he needs to take care of his daughter or even scraping enough money together to buy a motorcycle to increase his sales. His challenge is to survive, keep the business going and provide opportunities for his daughter.


The requested loan will go to buying merchandise: shoes, shirts, coats. Trust that everything can be better in Paraguay and that you and each of us can help to make it happen.
