A loan of $900 helped to buy a clothes dryer to use in her laundromat.


Marciana's story

Marciana is married to Celso, whose profession is glasswork. They have two sons, one of whom is already married, while the other is an independent adult. She runs a family laundromat where everyone works and helps out. Celso, her husband, helps her return the clean, ironed clothes that Marciana and her daughters clean and iron. In terms of clientele, she has customers from big businesses whom she charges monthly for services rendered, which assures her a monthly income. She has proven to be a very hardworking person who keeps her commitments. One of her goals is to keep her business growing gradually so that in the future she will help not only her family, but others by creating jobs. She is asking for a loan to buy an industrial clothes dryer, which will be very helpful to her in her work. She is very happy to have this opportunity from the Fundación Paraguaya.
