A loan of $525 helped to buy staples to sell later.


Mirtha's story

Mirtha is from Concepción where she has a small general store and she also sells used clothing. She tells us that thanks to the variety that she always has, things are going well because she could develop a good customer base.

She is a hard-working woman who, along with her husband, Eusebio, sacrifices every day by struggling to get ahead so that they have a better future. They have three children who are in primary school and high school. Mirtha tells us that the reason she works tirelessly is for her children.
She is requesting a loan to buy sugar, rice, noodles, breads, beans and more staples. She is very appreciative for the help from Kiva’s and The Paraguayan Foundation for this growth opportunity for herself and her family.
