Miguel's story

Don Miguel is 52 years old and has been married more than 15 years to Sra. De Las Nieve. They have two grown children who are independent.


Sr. Miguel is the son of a farmer, so all of his life has been spent growing cassava, corn, beans, and other agricultural products. He also spends time selling handicrafts since his wife is a weaver. Miguel is in charge of selling the quilts that she produces. He brings these handcrafted products to the cities of Areguá and Luque so that he can sell them. In addition, Miguel sells tobacco. Thanks to his work, he was able to provide a modest house for his family and add a variety of amenities to his home.


Miguel is requesting a loan so that he can buy bedspreads, hammocks, bed sheets, and other seasonal products that are frequently requested by his customers. This will help to supply him with more products to sell.
