Dina
Señora Dina is 48 years old, a widow and has five children. One year ago, with a loan granted by Fundación Paraguaya, she opened a general store in her home. She paid back the loan and is now requesting another in order to expand her business.

Señora Dina acquires the products she needs from a city that is 20 kilometers from her house. She makes two trips a month and only needs to take one bus to get there. She makes her purchases wholesale because it's less expensive for her that way.

She is requesting the loan to purchase beans, rice, sorghum, sweets, sodas, sherbet and other items with the goal of stocking up her store and improving the service she offers to her customers. Buying the most requested items in greater quantities generates a greater income so she can improve her family's quality of life. With her earnings, Señora Dina plans to keep investing in her business and to make improvements to her home.
