Rolando's story

Rolando is 25 years old, single, and lives with his mother in the city of Carapeguá. He says that from a very young age he began to sell bedspreads that he produces with his mother and father. After many years he became independent and began to work on his own.

He brings many handicrafts from the area to sell in the cities of Fernando de la Mora and Asunción. He transports them on his motorcycle which, thanks to this job, he managed to buy for himself and also help his family to get ahead.

He is requesting the loan to buy hammocks, blankets, and sheets as he has many orders for these products and he wants to be able to fulfill their demand.
