Adolfina's story

Adolfina P. Rojas is 44 years old. She's a widow and has three children who live with her in the house that she owns.

Adolfina owns a small shop where she sells drinks, that she opened after her husband passed away. Since then, the business has been the only income of her family. She is a hard worker. She has to purchase all her items at the wholesale food market without any help. She is also a quiniela bookie. When she's not at home, her children are in charge of her business.

Since 2006, Adolfina has been working with Fundación Paraguaya and she tells us that thanks to the loans she has received she has been able to build her sales shop and provide a better service for her customers. The loan she’s requesting now will be used to purchase beer, soft drinks, wine, spirits and cigarettes to take advantage of the holiday season.

Her greastest dream is to expand her business and attrack more customers.
