Aurora is 60 years old and is married to Señor Juan Vera who is a vendor. They have two shops (one in their home and the other in a market in the city).

Aurora opened her shop over 18 years ago and thanks to her perseverance and her insistence that sustains her, with her husband, she has been able to raise two children who are independent and are college-educated working professionals.

Aurora, thanks to her efforts and a good investment of loans acquired from the “Fundación Paraguaya”, has been able to improve the quality of her life and that of her family, which is how she was able to allow her children to study.

Aurora needs a loan to purchase more merchandise so that she can stock her businesses now that the season of higher prices is coming.
