Fulgencio's story

Fulgencio R. Ibarra is married, lives in the company of Candia de Atyra, and has his own house. He began his business with the production and sale of chipa (bread made with manioc or corn flour, typical of Paraguay), increasing his income and leading to opening a store in his house.

He started at first selling products from his garden and milk from his animals. In view of the good milk production from his animals as well as the sale of chipa bread, he continued little by little moving into other products for his store. It was then that he acquired a loan from Fundación Paraguay to achieve his goal.

In this way Fulgencio Rolón Ibarra today has a well supplied local store. He deeply thanks Fundación Paraguay for the consistent assistance they have provided to him.
