A loan of $650 helped to buy sugar, noodles, rice, tinned foods, meats and other items.

Maria's story

Luisa, who is 45 years old, is a merchant and her husband, Sergio who is 44 years old, is a driver for a company that sells construction materials. From this union they have three children who still rely on them.

Luisa started her business thanks to her husband's support through his wage. She now has a wide range of food products in her storeroom, including staple foods for families such as flour, noodles, tinned foods, baked goods and cleaning products.

She appreciates the support of Fundación Paraguaya and says that she is requesting this loan to buy staple products like sugar, noodles, rice, tinned foods, meats and others. With this she will be able to cater well for and offer a wider variety of products to her customers.
