Dúo Gladiolas De San Pedro Group's story

The Duo Gladiolas of San Pedro

Mrs. Sonia is the leader of this group. She lives alone since her children are older. She is the owner of a consumables store that sells products such as rice, beans, sugar, pasta, sodas, and she also has a small bookstore on the main street of her suburb. She says her dream is for her business to grow larger every day - always making more sales and having a greater income. She needs to invest in the purchase of rice, packages of sodas, pasta, beans and a bit of candy, but does not have the money to do so. For this reason, she needs a loan through Kiva to have more things in her store and to not upset her clients when they come to her store to buy things.
