Ninfa's story

Ninfa R. is 46 years old and has 3 children, one of them still of school age. Ninfa is married, and her husband works as a taxi driver using his own vehicle, which contributes to the family's economic support.

She has invested the loan she obtained from the Paraguaya Foundation in buying merchandise, so that she can have a more varied inventory of products, such as meat, vegetables, beverages, etc. Ninfa's plan for the future is to add ice cream sales to her store.

Ninfa appreciates the loan she has received, because it is allowing her to grow as an entrepreneur and reach her goals more quickly.
