Irma's story

Irma is 29 years old. She is a single mother and has two school-age daughters. She lives in Cerro Real. In her home she has a well-stocked grocery store. Hers is the only grocery store in her neighborhood and most of her customers are neighbors. Irma works very well in her business but she lacks some basic merchandise which her customers are requesting. This is why she is requesting a loan from Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva. She is grateful for the support she is receiving. She would like to buy those products which are most frequently consumed such as noodles, rice, flour and others.
