Bonifacia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy flour for her bakery.
Bonifacia is a 44-year-old woman who has been a shopkeeper for approximately five years. She has a store with baked goods, pantry items and a butcher shop. She has been married to her husband Victor for more than 24 years and they have three children together. She started from the bottom, and they had to travel to another country to work for eight years, leaving behind their family in search of a better future. Five years ago they returned to Paraguay and with the money they put together, they were able to set up their own store. This couple is very hard-working and above all, very selfless. Bonifacia is requesting this loan to be able to buy flour in bulk, since this will allow her to stock her bakery and continue working as she has been.
