Rosa
Rosa, 55, is a very hard-working woman. She has 5 children but only her daughter Mary, who is a university student, still lives at home with her.

Rosa sells salchipapas (fried chicken and potatoes) from 5pm until midnight. She works hard frying and selling her dishes. Her food stand is located at her doorstep and the business is quite profitable. She usually works alone but her daughter Mary helps out on weekends.

What she likes best about her work is chatting with her customers and treating them cordially. She has been in this line of work for 5 years. Sometimes, she doesn’t sell out all her product and incurs a loss.

For the future, she would like to increase the number of tables and chairs to offer her customers more comfort.

This is her 32nd loan and she pledges to repay in a timely fashion.

She is a cheerful member of her communal group.

She plans to use the requested funds to buy a grill and a tarp cover to provide better customer care.

Rosa tiene 55 años, es una mujer muy trabajadora, tiene 5 hijos, del que solo vive en su casa propia con su hija Mary que estudia en la Universidad. El negocio al que se dedica Rosa, es la venta de salchipapas (papas y pollo frito), por lo que empieza a partir de las 5 de la tarde hasta las 12 de la noche, trabajando arduamente, friendo y vendiendo sus platillos. Desde entonces su puesto de salchipapas lo realiza en la puerta de su casa atendiendo a sus clientes, resultándole muy rentable el negocio. Generalmente trabaja sola, pero los fines de semana su hija mary la apoya. Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es conversar con sus clientes y darles un trato cordial; es así que lleva 5 años en esta labor, sólo que a veces no termina de vender todo; y pierde parte de su capital. En el futuro planea incrementar mesas y sillas para ofrecer mayor comodidad a sus clientes. Este es su crédito número 32 y se compromete a pagar puntualmente sus cuotas. Además en su grupo comunal es un cliente risueño. Con el crédito que solicita, comprará una parrillero y toldo para ofrecer una mejor atención a sus clientes.
