Sandra Virginia's story

Sandra lives with her life partner and her son. She is currently pregnant. Her life partner is a farmer. She has lived in her house for 12 years. She does not have relatives living abroad. Sandra has had her own business of selling fruits and vegetables for six years. She tends to the business by herself, and she works Mondays through Sundays. Her life partner helped her financially to establish her business.

She will use the loan she is requesting to buy tomatoes, onions, peppers, lychees, apples, and other fruits and vegetables every time that she needs to. With this investment she plans to improve her sales and profits because she will offer her customers a greater variety of merchandise.

She dreams of making her business grow in order to have a better financial situation and to, in this way, be able to improve her family's quality of life.
