Vicenta Chera, 55, owns a store in Trinidad Mariano Roque Alonso neighborhood; she is originally from Asunción.

She used to work as a domestic employee. Gradually, she had enough savings to start selling beer from a room in her house where she had a refrigerator.

The business grew and she began to stock items besides beverages; she now had home use products.

In time, she had a small room built in front of her house that she uses as a store.
