Virgilia's story

Virgilia has been a widow for several years and now lives with her daughter, who depends on her financially. She also has other children who are independent and live separately. She says that she has no family living outside of the country.

Virgilia has her own business at the municipal market, selling clothes, ice and drinks such as juice, soda and water. Her customers include other traders who also run businesses at the market. She has been running this business for 23 years, and she works from 5 am to 3 pm.

She will use the loan to buy underwear, blouses, skirts and other items of clothing, as well as drinks like water, soda and juice, at wholesale prices to improve her profit margin, as this will let her buy the goods at low prices.

Her dreams are to keep improving her business and to have a more comfortable lifestyle. She also wants to build up an inheritance for her children.
