Maria's story

Maria Margarita is from the city of Carapegúa located in the community of Virgen de Carmen. She lives with Francisco and together they have a three-year-old son. She says that ever since she was small she has worked in sales (as a roving salesperson selling clothes on lay away or credit). She did this because she was a student and this was the only way she was able to study. Her parents are poor and were only able to pay for the household expenses. Today she works for herself. She has many years of experience in the field and has a dedicated customer base. She is thankful for the Paraguayan Foundation for the opportunity they have provided for her by making available this loan. She promises to pay her payments on time.
