Fernando's story

Fernando T., age 21, is from the city of Carapeguá. He is in his third year of studying the career of Agricultual Sciences in the University of San Lorenzo (UNISAL), which is in the city of Carapeguá.

He is an only child. His mother works with his father as a merchant. Fernando currently works selling balanced feed. He also helps his parents, which gives him experience and income for his studies at the same time. His parents slaughter horses. He travels to San Ignacio Misiones to buy horses, and he takes advantage of the trip to sell his balanced feed in the city and to some companies.

Fernando has a great desire to finish his studies and establish his own business. He will do this to have good income and to help his family because he is an only child. Fernando says that he especially wants to help his mother who is very self-sacrificing.

He is requesting a loan to make the monthly payment for his school. He will also buy books that he needs to study. Fernando is grateful for this loan because it will help him with his studies. At the same time he will be able to get credit references, which will be very important to his future plans.
