Francisco's story

Mr. Francisco is from the city of Santaní. He has his own home, with children. His wife earns a living selling various products. He is a very hard-working, responsible and very honest man. He started to work as a shoemaker, making general shoe repairs and selling used shoes. He used to travel to Ciudad del Este to bring his products and thus have more earnings to cover his household expenses.

His dream had always been to have a well-supplied general store in order to be able to generate more income and thus be able to have a better quality of life for him and his whole family. With his effort, work and dedication, he succeeded, reaching his goals without any type of problem. Today, he has the shop he dreamed of and he is requesting this loan in order to be able to supply it with drinks, food products, vegetables, milk and more. He also is grateful for this opportunity that he is receiving.
