Victorina's story

Señora Victorina is 55 years old and has been married to Señor Gervasio for many years, with whom she has children who are all grown-up and independent. They are from the city of Encarnación.

Señora Victorina has a canteen in a school. She has been doing this job for a long time, and it's going very well. Her husband makes a living making and selling chipa, a traditional cornbread made with cheese. He has a small workshop in their home where he produces and sells chipa every day. They have many customers locally as they are well-known. Thanks to these activities they have been able to move forwards, support their family and pay any unexpected bills.

Victorina is requesting this loan to buy ingredients for her canteen, such as drinks, sweets, juices and other items so that it is well-stocked.
