Agustin's story

Agustín is from Ciudad del Este. He’s married and has three children all of which are still little and going to elementary school. He comments that all his efforts are aimed at providing a better future for his children since they are his and his wife’s reason for living.

They have a well-stocked store where they work from very early in the day, both he and his wife. They started the business with a little money Agustín got as part of a severance pay from a previous job.

In addition to working in his store, Agustín also has a farm where he grows lettuce, manioc and other vegetables and with earnings from their sales he’s able to stock his store. He is a very responsible person who very much wants to get ahead. He has a jovial, enterprising spirit and there’s no doubt that he will reach all the goals he’s set for himself.

He is requesting the loan to buy beverages, noodles, rice, canned goods and other supplies to stock his store
