Due to a lack of economic resources, Sandy was only able to study through her senior year in high school, though she would have like to continue studying at a university. Each day, Sandy works selling food and soft drinks from her home. She works about nine hours a day and serves up to 30 customers daily. Sandy believes that she is getting ahead because she is very kind to her customers and, above all, she is a very good cook.
Sandy is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their support she has been able to buy an awning to put outside of her home and thus, offer her customers a more comfortable atmosphere. She will purchase tables, chairs, and a freezer. In this way, she will be able to better attend to her customers and increase her profits. Sandy will continue trying to turn her dream into a reality: "to own her own house and have a big restaurant."
