Ismael's story

Ismael is 56 years old and lives in the city of Paraguarí. He is married to María, with whom he has five children, all of which are grown up. Ismael started to work in construction approximately 30 years ago. He started as an assistant bricklayer and twenty years ago he started to work independently in the zone of Paraguarí and the surrounding areas. He is a very hardworking person and wishes to continue working to help cover the household expenses.

He requested the loan to get a new vehicle, since it is how he gets around to do his work and it would make his work easier to be able to transport his tools.
