Angelina, 59, is a very hardworking woman. She's a single mother and has lived in the city of Coronel Oviedo for 20 years. Angelina has a very well-stocked general store. She began with a few products and then started expanding with her loans from Fundación Paraguaya and her profits. She says her work is very demanding because she and her son are the only ones in her family who work.

Her dream is to buy another stand in the Cruce Internacional area because her commercial space is small for her now.

She's requesting this loan to be able to invest in buying yerba mate, soda, beer, and other supplies to be able to continue having her business well stocked and to help her family.
