She has worked in her store for several years stocking it little by little. This is why she is asking for funding in order to stock the business buying a greater amount of clothing and shoes which are the items that sell best.

Virginia also wants to buy some toys because the feast day dedicated to children is approaching and sales increase then. Virginia hopes thus to get ahead and have a better life for herself and her husband.
