View original language description ↓
I have a store that I have had for five years; I devote myself full-time to attend to my customers, who look for the quality of my products. I have four children who help me to go and buy the products to supply the store. My proposal is to increase my business and to be able to supply it. It is also my desire to purchase two display counters and fill them with products so that my store can have all that is necessary for everyday needs.

Translated from Spanish by Helen Smith, Kiva volunteer.

Tengo una tienda, donde llevo 5 años de tenerla; me dedico a tiempo completo a poderla atender donde mis clientes buscan la calidad de mis productos.
Tengo 4 hijos de los cuales me ayudan para poder ir a comprar el producto y poder surtirlo.
Mi propósito es agrandar mi negocio y así poder surtirlo. Además mi deseo es poder comprar dos mostradores y llenarlo de productos, para que mi tienda pueda tener todo lo necesario para los consumos del día.
