Disc brake town bike for sub 5 foot rider

These are 26x1.4" tires from Michelin. The triple crankset will come in handy for the steep hills in the San Fransisco neighborhood that this rider lives in. My guess is that the house may be up on the hill but all the shopping is at the bottom .
The disc brakes are a good way to clean up the look of the bike, solve cable routing issues on such a small frame and most importantly, provide stopping power for a bike with a load of groceries or a loaded trailer.
