Victorina's story

Victorina is someone who is well known in her community. She currently lives with her partner and has two adult children. She runs a business selling fruit and vegetables and works from 7am to 4pm. She has been doing this with her husband for 53 years. She learnt the business through economic necessity and it has the advantage that she runs it from her home. The loan she is asking for will enable her to buy a variety of produce such as tomatoes, carrots, onions, chillies, grapes, apples, oranges and other items to sell. This investment will help her to have a well stocked business which will help her to make more profit. Her dream is to have an extensive business which gives her a better economic profitability, and in this way the loan increases her possibilities for making progress in life.
