Victoria makes a living selling vegetables and makes a little through cattle raising. With the little she makes from her crops and from the sales in her shop, she must cover the costs of food, schooling, and paying the bills. Victoria's husband does not help with costs as he works in the city.
Victoria needs this loan to buy improved seeds for vegetables. These seeds will help her save time as they do not need watering often and they grow more quickly. The ground will not deteriorate as quickly with these seeds and they are good for the environment.
Victoria's dream is to increase her income in order to provide her children with a better quality of life. She wants to increase her income so as to spend more time raising cattle.
This is the second time that Victoria has applied for a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
Actualmente se dedica a la producción de verduras y muy poco al ganado ya que con lo poco que gana con su producción y en la venta de su tienda de barrio debe cubrir los gastos de alimentación, educación y pago de servicios básicos ya que su esposo no le ayuda por que trabaja en la ciudad .
El crédito lo requiere para la compra de semilla mejorada de verduras ya que sera de mucha ayuda economizando su tiempo por que esta no requiere de mucho riego y su producción es mas rápida y el terreno se desgasta menos, cuidando así el medio ambiente.
El sueño de Victoria es mejorar sus ingresos para brindarles mejor calidad de vida a sus hijos y aumentar sus ingresos para dedicarse también al engorde de ganado.
Es la segunda vez que solicita crédito junto a IMPRO y también junto a KIVA.
