He dedicates approximately 10 hours each day to his business and is able to serve up to 15 customers in a day. Victor believes he is doing well in his business because his "alfajores" are delicious and he attends to his customers in a friendly manner.
He is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help he is receiving, Victor will be able to buy supplies for preparing his "alfajores" such as milk, sugar, flour, butter, and "manjar blanco" (a sweet dairy confection that is similar to caramel) since these are the necessary ingredients for making his products. He will continue to work each day to fulfill his greatest dream of having a house of his own and becoming a specialist in sweets.
