A loan of $900 helped to buy welding materials and iron.

Jorge Andres's story

Sr. Jorge is from the city of Caaguzú. He is 34 years old and has been married to Sra. Maria, age 33, for seven years. They have two children.

Jorge has been a blacksmith for more than 10 years. He took up this job slowly. Jorge started out as a secretary but he later went out on his own. Thanks to the small amount of savings that he had, Jorge was able to gather what he needed for his work. His wife operates a food pantry in their home.

Jorge describes himself as a determined and hardworking gentleman. He says that all of his efforts are intended to provide his family the best and they give him great pride. In his business, Jorge enjoys continuing the construction of a shed so that he can expand his workshop. This will allow him to serve more customers.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy welding materials and iron that he uses in his trade. Jorge is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity that has been given to him.
