Mrs.Jovita C. is 53 years old and is married to Mr. Arnulfo Robles. They have 5 grown children and come from a very humble family. Her mother used to work at the same line of business (butcher shop) and her dad use to work in construction.

Jovita has a small butcher shop where she exclusively sells cow's giblets ( intestines, tongue, liver, heart, etc.). With her work, she has been able to educate her children who actually study and work. The income generated by her business has not been enough to give her the possibility to invest on her home. She has applied for credits of the Fundacion Paraguaya before and was able to buy a truck that helps her sell her products in different cities.

Today, she is eager to acquire a new loan which she will like to invest in repairing her house. That way she can have a better selling location for her business.
