Juan's story

Sr. Juan is from the town of Carapeguá. He is married to 29-year old Sra. Faustina and they have a daughter who is the reason they both work hard. Juan has been working as a street vendor for approximately fifteen years and has customers in the towns of Chore and Gran Asunción. He travels there every weekend while during the week he works with a great sense of dedication and responsibility as a gas station attendant. His wife is a weaver and helps him with household expenses. Through hard work and effort, Juan has managed to build his own house and also owns a motorcycle which he uses to travel wherever he needs to go. Juan is seeking a loan to buy sheets, blankets, comforters, clothing, footwear and other items which he will sell in the streets at weekends.
