Virginia Adilia
View original language description ↓
Virginia sells vegetables in the “Station” market of Leon. She began her small business 12 years ago. At the time she sold small quantities which at times she was unable to sell due to low demand or the high level of competition in the market.


In order to maintain her nuclear family Virginia applied for loans from Ceprodel. She obtained 16 loans which she used to purchase additional vegetables and also to cover the expenses of her family, such as electricity, water and school tuition for her young children.


Virginia’s great dream is to be able to save for the future of her children by becoming a large merchant in the “Station” market and thus being able to impact the entire population of shoppers.

Translated from Spanish by Casey Unrein, Kiva volunteer.





El negocio al que se dedica la señora Virginia es a la venta de verduras en el mercado la Estación en León. Su pequeño negocio inició hace 12 años con la venta de pequeñas cantidades de verduras que en ocasione ni siquiera eran vendidas ya que ofertaba poco y además era mucha la competencia en su alrededor.



Consiente de la necesidad de mantener su núcleo familiar, la señora Virginia ha realizado créditos en Ceprodel obteniendo un total de 16 créditos que le han favorecido en la adquisición de los perecederos (las verduras) y también en los gastos de su humilde hogar como en el pago de la energía eléctrica, agua y la educación de sus pequeños. Su mayor sueño es llegar a ser una gran comerciante en el mercado la Estación y llegar a impactar toda la masa de compradores de dicho mercado con el único propósito de ahorrar para el futuro de sus hijos.
