Bernarda's story

Bernarda is a saleswoman. For more than five years she has had a small, well-stocked grocery store in her home in Azucena de Cnel. Oviedo neighborhood. She also sells hardware in her store and sells food in front of her home. Bernarda has been married to Ramón Rojas for more than 20 years. He is now retired and receives a state pension. Bernarda tells us that she has no complaints as regards her sales. She has lots of customers all day long as there are two large workshops next to her business and a lot of people come to her store. Bernarda is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for having placed their trust in her, giving her an opportunity to form part of a large family of small businesses to whom they offer funds for working capital. Bernarda requested her loan to buy merchandise for her business.
