Virginia is a Kubo Financiero client and this is her story:
My name is Virginia and I am 56 years old. I live with my family in a house in Mexico City. I have been selling beauty products, imitation jewelry and notions for 20 years already. My store is located on a market. In my store, I sell products and I offer weaving classes to people interested.
I will use this loan to purchase goods such as shoes and backpacks for the Back to School season. In this way, I am hoping to increase sales and therefore, increase profits. My biggest accomplishments are sending my children off to college and giving them a good quality of life. I believe I am a responsible person and I don’t like being late on my payments.
