Mirna's story

Mirna is 30 years old and single. She started working as a traveling salesperson five years ago. She now has 400 clients with whom she works on credit. She provides merchandise according to what each client needs. Her father also worked in this trade, passing on the family business.

With the loans she has received from Fundación Paraguaya, a Kiva partner, she has been able to expand her market and satisfy the needs of her clients. She has seen an increase in her income and has bought two motorcycles to help her work.

Even though she is now living out of her parents’ home, she still contributes to her family’s expenses in order to cover any needs her younger brothers and sisters might have.
