Aida's story

Aida, 43, is a merchant. She’s married to Francisco and together they have a stand in the terminal selling thermoses, mugs, shoes and toys in general; they’ve been in business 12 years and are open 24 hours a day. They live in their own house in the city of Encarnación and they have four children two of which are still little and dependent on them. Aida has a well-established regular clientele because they also distribute in the city’s neighborhood. Thanks to this activity she’s been able to get ahead, to support her home and to cover unexpected expenses. They’ve worked with Fundación Paraguaya since 2004. Aida has requested this loan to buy quilted blankets to sell because she’ll be able to continue working this way and improving her business.
