Victoria's story

Victoria is 51 years old and the mother of a very happy family. She lives with her husband and their two children. For more than 15 years she has maD. a living selling newspapers, magazines and some candies. Every morning she arrives at her kiosk and sets up her items to make them as visible as possible to ensure an easy sale. Her newsstand is on the outskirts of the market along the city's main avenue, where her customers are bus drivers and people who pass through there. Victoria is very pleased with her business and says she really enjoys conversing with her clients. In the future, she plans to finish construction on her home to improve her children's well-being, and to also diversify her business. This is her 10th loan with Kiva partner MFP, and she promises to make her payments on time. Along with her fellow group members she is very attentive and gets along with all of them. With the loan she is requesting, she plans to purchase magazines for all kinds of trades and in this way add more variety of magazines to her kiosk.
