Rosana Ruvelinda G. S.

I have three minor children. When I was ten, I sold fruit with my mother from a stand that she bought. In time, she gave me her business so that I could generate my own income. That is how I only had to bring the merchandise from the fruit market (avocado, apple, passion fruit, eggfruit, and bananas) and sometimes fruits from our farm. I also worked cleaning houses. I had to stop selling in my business because I needed to take care of my last baby.

After four months I decided to set up a space in my house to sell groceries. I used the money that I had saved to do so. Initially my merchandise was ¼ dozen detergents, ½ dozen oils, 2 dozen milk, ½ dozen tuna, 1 dozen soft drinks, ¼ dozen salt, and a sack of sugar. My husband did not like the idea because he wanted a larger business with greater income. Now he is the one who drives me to get ahead. I know that with my effort I will make my store grow. The earnings that I get I use to better set up my store.

I need the loan to buy fruit, diapers, toilet paper, rice, sugar, and milk. In the future, this will support my children’s education.

ROSANA RUVELINDA G. S.

Tengo tres hijos menores de edad, a los diez años vendía con mi madre frutas en un puesto que compró, lo que con el tiempo me cedió su negocio a fin de generar mis propios ingresos. Es así que sola tenía que traer la mercadería del mercado de fruta (palta, manzana, granadilla, tumbo, lúcuma, plátanos) y a veces los frutos que daba nuestra chacra; así mismo trabajé limpiando en casas. Tuve que dejar de vender en mi negocio porque mi último bebé necesitaba de mis cuidados.
Hace cuatro meses decidí acondicionar un espacio de mi casa para expender abarrotes, para ello utilicé el capital que había ahorrado, al inicio mi mercadería era ¼ docena de detergente, ½ doc. de aceite, 2 doc. de leche, ½ doc. atún, 1 doc. gaseosas, ¼ doc.sal, un saco de azúcar. A mi esposo no le agradó la idea porque él quería un negocio más grande con mayores ingresos; ahora es él quien me impulsa a seguir adelante, sé que con mi esfuerzo haré crecer mi tienda. Las ganancias que obtengo implemento más mi tienda; para ello necesito el préstamo para invertir en frutas, pañales, papel higiénico, arroz, azúcar, leche; lo que a futuro será el apoyo para la educación a mis hijos.
