María Ignacia
María Ignacia is 54 years old. She was married to Apolonio Benitez for 34 years, and they had five children during their marriage: Mirian, Eusebio, Rolando, Ninfa, and Liliana. They live in Nueva Londres near the city of Coronel Oviedo.

María Ignacia has been a businesswoman for 18 years. She has a store selling groceries and meat in the center of the city of Nueva Londres, a humble community where people raise cattle. She began with a small kiosk where she sold staple items. With the passage of time it grew, with much effort and with the help of her husband.

She rises very early in the morning to take care of her small farm, feed her animals, and milk the cow, so that she then can devote herself to the business that sustains her home.

This business helped her raise and educate all of her children, some of whom are already professionals. She is very proud of them because they knew how to value the effort of their parents.

For her, family is very important, and she remembers her husband, whom she lost a few months ago, with great emotion. All of those good memories drive her and strengthen her to continue fighting for her children each day.

She approached Fundación Paraguaya with the objective of receiving a loan that will help her move forward and enable her to purchase staple items such as pasta, yerba mate, flour, sugar, meat, etc., to better supply her store.
