A loan of $1,150 helped purchase fruits & vegetables.

Pascuala's story

Sra. Pascuala O. is married and has four grown children. She sells vegetables and fruits at the municipal market of San Estanislao. Pascuala says she began selling cassava and bananas from the District of Santani that her son brought in by truck each day.

As time passed and with great sacrifice, she continued to struggle along with her son. Pascuala was able to rent a small space at the market where she could store her merchandise and provide better service to each of her customers. Thanks to the assistance provided by Fundación Paraguaya, she has now purchased another truck so that her children can deliver her products throughout the area of San Estanislao. Her dream is to have her own store where she can work in an efficient manner. She wants to have a decent life in which she can get ahead and achieve her goals and proposed objectives.
