Benita
Señora Benita is from the city of Santaní. She is married with children, and her husband is a farmer. Benita runs a small grocery store. She started out selling cassava and vegetables from a cart around the Bertoni district, and dreamt of having a fixed location in the market in Santaní - something that her circumstances then would not allow. So she kept working and working until she was able to set up a snack bar in her house, and over time she realised her dream of having a grocery and selling vegetables from her own premises. This was thanks also to the support of Fundación Paraguaya who granted her the loans she sought. This time she is seeking a loan to buy foods, drinks, baked goods, and other groceries to stock her business, because she always has a lot of customers and she likes to be ready to serve them. She is grateful to the Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity they are offering.
