Gregorio
Gregorio owns a grocery store. He is married with 2 children; his wife is a dressmaker and both work out of their home. Their well-stocked grocery is in their home in the city of San José.

Gregorio tells us that the loans he has received from Fundación Paraguaya have allowed him to buy high turn-over products in bulk, such as sugar, tea, beef, chicken, oil, noodles, rice among other daily foods which made the store more attractive to potential customers given that it is so well stocked. His short-term goal is to buy the raw materials to make chips to sell in his store; he would also like to begin selling ice cream and fast-foods as he has experimented with these in previous Summers and found that they sold well. He plans to offer food as well, such as hamburgers, empanadas, chicken, milanesas (breaded beef), etc.
