Mariano's story

35-year-old Mariano was married for eight years, but he's currently separated. He has three children who live with him.
Mariano has been a street vendor for one year. He worked as an employee for many years and, after saving up a small working capital, he decided to work on his own account. He makes his sales in the Repatriación and Caaguazú area. In order to do that, he owns a motorcycle which he uses to deliver his merchandise. During the time he's been in the business he already got a regular clientele, thanks to the good service he provides to his customers.
He requests the loan in order to purchase iron pots, pans, quilts, sheets, blenders, fans, comforters, hammocks and other items. He will be able to offer them to his customers and increase his monthly income.
