Odilonia is a single mother of a beautiful daughter. She lives with her parents and owns a small convenience store where she sells groceries such as soft drinks, fruits, vegetables, canned goods, noodles, flour, etc. This summer season, the products that are sold the most are cold drinks. She also plans to sell homemade ice cream next month.

She is currently requesting this loan so that she may purchase soft drinks, juice, mineral water, and beer because those are the most popular items this season.

Translated from Spanish by Elizabeth Casian, Kiva Volunteer.

Odilonia, es madre soltera una hermosa hija; vive con sus padres y es propietaria de un despensa donde vende todo tipo de artículos de primera necesidad y de consumo.

Entre las cosas que vende podemos citar gaseosas, frutas, vegetales, productos enlatados, fideos, harina, etc. En esta época de verano lo que más vende son las bebidas bien frías, más adelante desea vender helados de su propia elaboración.

El proyecto de venta y elaboración de los helados lo concretará en el mes siguiente. Hoy ella solicita un crédito para poder surtir su despensa con bebidas como gaseosas, jugos, agua mineral y cerveza ya que son los de mayor venta en esta época.
