Mirian De Jesús's story

Ms. Mirian is 28 years old. She has been selling fruits and vegetables for a living for several years. She started the business with financial help from her parents. At the moment, she sells her products at her own stall in the city market. Fresh fruits are her best selling product. She sells a variety of fruits and vegetables: oranges, apples, pairs, pomelos, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, etc. Mirian has a strong desire to improve and to expand her business by buying additional products in greater quantity. She lives with her parents and the business allows her to cover home expenses and to support her parents. She is very happy with her work and has asked for a loan from Fundación Paraguaya to buy additional varieties of fruits and vegetables and to buy greater quantities of her products She is grateful to the organizations that secure the loans. They make it possible for many people to get ahead who may not have the financial means to do so.
