Secundino's story

Sr. Secundino is a “macatero” (a rural salesman) who travels around selling clothes such as jeans for women and men, t-shirts for sports and casual wear, and shoes (both dress shoes and athletic shoes). He sells this merchandise in the afternoons since he spends the morning selling fruits and vegetables.

Secundino owns a truck that he uses for his business, as well as a house in the city. He says that he has been in this business for two years. Previously he worked as an employee for a mining company in Ypacarai, where he had 12 years of experience.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy seasonal clothing such as shirts, t-shirts, shoes, and other items. He is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity that has been given to him. Obtaining credit will be a great help to his enterprise.
