A loan helped buy flour, rice, beverages, pastas, etc.


Marlene's story

Marlene C. is 25 years old, a hairdresser, and has a 3-year-old daughter named Soledad. She lives in her parents house, where she has run a well-stocked store with a good number of customers for more than 2 years. She also has a small beauty salon next to the store, where she attends to a large number of clients, mostly on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

She says that thanks to her first loan with Fundación Paraguaya, she has been able to steadily increase the amount of goods she sells and in this way has improved her quality of life and that of her family. For this reason she will continue to work hard every day so that she achieves all her goals.

She is asking for a loan to buy merchandise, such as flour, rice, beverages, pastas, etc.
