Ventura is 37 years old, is single, and is a merchant. She also works as a receptionist for the city government of Paraguarí.

Ventura started her business over twelve years ago, opening a small booth where she sold undergarments. Thanks to a loan from the “Fundación Paraguaya,” she was able to strengthen her business which has helped her to gain the large clientele she now has and has noticeably improved the quality of her life.

Ventura needs a loan to purchase garments for the season, now that winter is coming.
