Edgar's story

His clientele consists of building contractors, architects and private individuals who receive the items at their construction sites or come get them at the brick factory. The loan Edgar is requesting is to buy sand because he has an important brick order that he wants to fill and he does not want to disappoint his customer. He has been working exclusively with Fundación Paraguaya for more than 5 years and has always been responsible with his payments. His objective every day is to expand his business and acquire more customers to improve his income as well as his and his family’s quality of life.
