Maria's story

Mrs. Maria Olmeda, 24, has been married for one year. Her husband, Dario Flores is 25. They do not have children yet.

Last year she put her money together and started her business. Her sister, who works in the same field, helped. She worked for the Caagauazú municipality for 2 years. That’s how she was able to save and start her business.

Her husband runs the business in the mornings, and Maria runs it in the afternoons. They do all types of work like making photo copies, bookbinding, and computer work. Also, they are well located near several schools, a high school, and a college.

Maria and her husband are studying law, and they are close to finishing. Their objective is to expand their business and finish their university studies.

She is asking for a loan to buy another machine to be able to complete all of the orders they receive.
