A loan of $1,025 helped to buy clothing and shoes.


Gilberta's story

Gilberta is 29 years old, and is a single mother with one child. She lives in the city of Caacupé. She has had a business selling clothing and shoes for 3 years. She makes her sales in the Piribebuy and Paraguari neighborhoods on the basis of order she takes from her customers.

She tells us that because she is friendly and offers good prices on her products, she already has a good number of customers who always come to her to buy their products. Her dream is to be able to have a big store, which would enable her to give her son everything he needs so that he can have a life without limitations. Gilberta tells us that it takes a lot of self-sacrifice to work and be a mother, because she is on her own, but she doesn't get tired because she wants to give the best to her child.

With the loan that she is requesting from the Fundacion Paraguaya and Kiva, she wants to buy shoes and other garments so that she can meet the demand based on her customer's orders.
