Dora is 59 years old, and she started her business 18 years ago. She has a small store where she sells food and other products. She is not married and has no children, so she devotes all of her time to her small business. She works almost every day in her store, because her dream is to see it grow. She is requesting a Kiva loan so that she can expand her store by purchasing more products that are basic necessities at a better price.
