Walbina is a long-standing client of our organization; she is married and has two adult children. She sells general merchandise and clothing from a stall on the corner of Estigarribía Municipal Route and Madame Lynch (better known as Last Street). It is very well situated because it is in an area of heavy foot traffic and, thanks to this, she has been in business for 30 years and has a good-sized regular customer base. She lives in the city of Capiata, 20 km away, from which she travels daily to tend to her stall. She owns her own home and tells us that she was able to do several improvements to it thanks to the loans granted by Fundación Paraguaya. These funds will be used to buy merchandise like: seasonal clothing, caps, underwear, bermuda shorts, etc.
