Maria Selva's story

Mrs. Maria D. is 25 years old, single, without children, and lives in Clarita Calle Gimenez, a residential area in the city of Coronel Oviedo.

Mrs. Maria sells meat pies, breaded meat and beverages to an established customer base. She remembers having established her business in a small stand selling meat pies and has been able to expand her business over the years. She is a hard-working person who gets up at 5:00 a.m. to begin her work day and prepare her delicious pies and food in general. Maria says she used to have a cyber-café which she sold to obtain the necessary capital to invest in her current business.

She plans to use the loan obtained through the Paraguaya Foundation to buy more meat for her products. In this way she will be able to increase her products and improve service to customers.
