Maria has been a merchant for 6 years. Her greatest difficulty she has is the rising prices of the products; in some cases she has had to take a loss on them. Her future plans are to have her own place to sell fruits and vegetables because renting is reducing her income and she has three children to feed, educate, and take care of. She is grateful for the confidence that Afodenic has given her through the Kiva funds to increase her inventory and to grow as a merchant.
