A loan of $1,275 helped to buy shoes.

Teodora's story

Teodora, 45, is a merchant. Her husband, Eustacio, 60, helps her in her business. The couple has adult children who are independent now; one of them is a merchant and the other one works in Spain and sends help and another son has his own business selling mobile phones and accessories.

She started in the sales market more than 20 years ago thanks to economic help from her husband who started in commerce selling clothes. Her sales stand is located in an important commercial center in the city where many people come; she has a good clientele.

She’s asking for the loan to buy seasonal footwear like boots, women’s shoes, baby shoes and men’s dress shoes. She thanks Fundación Paraguaya for the support and comments that one of her greatest wishes is that her business is prosperous every day.
