Ysabel's story

Ysabel, 59, has been a widow for 6 years. She is from Luque and she tells us that she is a businesswoman. She says that since she was young, she followed in her mother's footsteps. It was she who taught her all that she knows. Ysabel worked in different places, got married, and opened her own workshop.

Today, thanks to her sacrifice and effort, she has a well-equipped workshop where she has customers who have been with her for some years and they always bring her much work. Her biggest dream is to enlarge her workshop where it is and thus offer better service to her customers.
She is requesting a loan to buy material, thread, glue, zippers, and more, since she has a lot of orders that she would like to complete. She is grateful for the help and for the opportunity that the Paraguayan Foundation and Kiva have given her.
