Mario's story

Mr. Mario S. is 56 years old, single, and lives in one of the Carapeguá neighborhoods called Espartillar. Since he was 17 years old he has gone out to sell quilts made by his mother. After 10 years he became independent and started to work on his own. He brings artisan products from the area and sells them in the cities of Villarica, Caazapa, and Yuty. Thanks to the income that his work generates, Mario was able to have a small house built where he lives with his mother, since he is responsible for taking care of her. With the loan he will purchase bedspreads, sheets, and hammocks.
