Rossio Claudia
Mrs. Rossio is married and has three children. Her work is making cakes, cookies, and pastries, which she does on weekends since she also works as a receptionist at a medical office. Through these activities, she helps to augment the family’s income since Fernando, her husband, is currently working abroad outside of Bolivia.

She is requesting a loan in order to buy a larger oven so she can carry out her work better. For the moment, she tends to her school-aged children on her own. Mrs. Rossio is a responsible and hard-working woman who is trying to help her family get ahead, and who wants to improve the standard of living for them all. She is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the confidence they show in her through the granting of credit.
