Natalicia Graciela's story

Natalicia is 58 years old. She is a saleswoman and is married to 60 year-old Ramón. They have a 30 year-old daughter.

The couple have owned a stationery store for more than 10 years. Natalicia was able to open the business thanks to their joint effort. In her business she also uses a computer to do pieces of work for people and makes photocopies.

Natalicia is requesting this loan from Fundación Paraguaya to buy supplies for her stationery store such as exercise books, pens, rulers, pencils, folders, paper, pencil cases, lunch bags, etc. since it is currently a peak season as the school year is starting.
