Alicia's story

Alicia is 54 years old; she lives in her own home with her partner, Osvaldo, who is 55 years old and their two young children. Each day they work hard to get ahead in life. This enterprising woman works selling foodstuffs and office supplies in a store that she made out a room in her home. Alicia is very happy since her neighbors prefer to buy from her since she treats her customers with kindness and she offers her products at good prices. What she does not like is that she has to spend a lot of time at home so as to not neglect her business although sometimes her family helps her take care of the customers. For the future she wants to improve her store as she wants to give better service to her customers. This is her seventh loan with MFP (Kiva’s field partner) Alicia promises to pay her loan quotas on time since she doesn’t want to deceive the people who have made possible this loan that will allow her to continue working toward her progress. Alicia has planned to use the loan to buy various grocery products as well as office supplies since school time is approaching and she wants to meet the majority of her customers’ needs.
