Virginia Rita's story

Ms. Virginia is an old client who has returned after more than three years. Her family is only made up of her 20 year-old daughter and herself. Her older daughters already have families and no longer live near her, only visiting from time to time on the weekends. Ms. Virginia, as everyone knows, has a grocery store in the Cota Cota zone approximately 2 and a half blocks from her house. As well, her and her daughter participate in the sale of crafts and also sell sandwiches and soft drinks at the synthetic grass playing field on the weekends. This requires a good investment since she handles 20 cases of soft drinks alone each weekend. At this time she is requesting a loan through Kiva financing to make an order of panetones, which are only made once for wholesale, and the rest she is requesting for the purchase of groceries.
