Asunción's story

Asunción is 47 years old and is married to 32-year-old Pedro, with whom she has four children who are 27, 25, 11 and 7 years old. They all live at their older children’s house; they work and contribute to the household. Their two younger children are in school. Pedro is a lathe operator and works independently, as he has his own workshop.


Asunción runs a restaurant where she serves all the personnel, drivers and security guards from a transportation company in the area. She mentions that she gets up very early to prepare the set menu for the day, as it requires a great deal of work. She says that she is very happy with her job since it allows her to help with the household expenses.


She is requesting the loan for the purchase of ingredients to make food for the restaurant, such as meat, dairy products, vegetables and other items. She is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity provided to her, since receiving the loan will be of great help.
