A loan of $1,150 helped to buy meat in bulk.


Asterios's story

Mr. Asterio is years old and works selling meat. He depends upon the help of his family, which is made up of his wife and a 20 year old son. He previously worked for a different business, but then he started a business by opening his own butcher shop. He currently has all the necessary butcher equipment (electric saws, freezers, butcher block) and regular customers. He is asking Fundación Paraguaya for a loan to buy meat in bulk to provide for the current demands.
