Mrs. Ana P. is 48 years old and is married to Isidoro Marecos, who is a construction worker who earns a good living. They have a younger son and all live in the city of Pilar, in the neighborhood of Convai Norte. They live in their own house, where they have all the comforts of home.
Ana has been working in her tailoring business for more than ten years, and has all of the necessary resources for the development of her business – a large salon where she can make her garments.
She applied for credit to be able to buy fabric for her tailor shop, more specifially to make school uniforms. She is very thankful for the support she receives from the Paraguay Foundation. She plans to take advantage of the opportunity to grow her business, as this is the third loan she has received from the Foundation.
