A loan of $1,025 helped to finish building a space to rent out.

Carmen's story

Carmen is 56 years old, unmarried, and lives with her partner. Her children are adults and live independently. She lives in the city of Curuguaty.

Carmen owns a beverage store next to a fast food counter. She has 4 years of experience in this business. Her store is very well situated, since it is in a densely populated neighborhood and has little competition. She started out in this business with very little and through much effort she is now where she is today. Her partner works for a private company. Both of them help each other to improve their standard of living and that of their families.

Fundación Paraguaya has provided crucial assistance to this family, since it provided them with credit support. They are now asking for a second loan so they can finish building a space to rent out, which will generate another source of income for them.
