For 16 years Anita has helped her husband, a painter, with the household expenses with her food stand in the market.

Thanks to the Ceviche (seafood dish) and Chanfainita (traditional beef dish) sales, Rita has been able to provide a better education to her two children and maintain her home.

Now that her children are preparing to go to the university, Anita would like to open a grocery store which would bring her greater income.

Translated from Spanish by Cindy Kendall, Kiva volunteer.

Ahora que sus hijos se preparan para la universidad, Anita quisiera poner una tienda de abarrotes que le brindaría mayores ingresos.
