Nilda
View original language description ↓
Mrs. Nilda is 45 years old, married, and has three children. She is owner of a vegetable and fruit stand in the municipal market for over 12 years. She depends on her steady amount of clients who visit her in the market daily to purchase her products. She comments that this job has helped her husband to maintain family expenses; provide her children with a good education; and to finish and expand her house.


The loans that she was granted from Fundación Paraguaya allowed her to attain an operating capital so that she was able to purchase the products on sale and in greater quantities since prices vary constantly in this sector.


Her goal is to open a small convenience store at her house so that her children can manage and watch over. Hence, she is seeking a loan to purchase the necessary elements such as a freezer and merchandise such as tomatoes, onions, lettuce, oranges, apples, etc.
