A loan of $1,250 helped buy clothing, shoes, and sewing supplies.


Juan's story

Juan is married to Faustina and they have two children for whom they strive to give everything they can. They live in the city of Carapeguá.

Don Juan works as a street vendor selling all kinds of goods. He started working as a salesman since it gave him very good profits that he uses to support his family. He sells in the cities of Asunción, Itá and Itauguá and carries handmade, local goods as well some products that his wife makes. In particular, she makes bedspreads, blankets, and hammocks.

He is asking for this loan to buy clothing, shoes, sewing supplies, and general supplies for his business. He needs these things because he has many orders. He is grateful for this opportunity that is being offered to them.
