Rosa Victoria
Rosa is 45 years old, separated, and is caring for two children. She lives with her family in the city of Lambayeque, which is located 20 minutes north of the city of Chiclayo.

In order to get her children ahead, she works as a street vendor, selling food from a cart which has been specially designed for that purpose. She started out selling hamburgers and salchipollos [fried potatoes with shredded chicken and hot-dogs] in front of her house, but has now decided to setup her business outside the Lambayeque city market. All of her foods are very well received by her customers, owing to the delicious seasoning with which she prepares them.

Rosa is quite aware of her responsibilities when preparing food, and does so in the most sanitary manner possible. She would now like to acquire some additional equipment so that she can prepare more food, and thereby satisfy the demand of her customers at her new location. For this reason she has requested a loan of 2000 new soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

Rosa is extremely hard working, responsible, and dedicated to her family. She has previously worked with Kiva, and thanks to this previous help, she was able to move her business from the front of her house into its current location.

Her biggest wish is to give her little ones the opportunity to study a good career, so they can enjoy a better future.

La necesidad de sacar a sus hijos adelante ha hecho que se dedique a la venta ambulante de comida en un carrito especialmente diseñado para esta actividad. Empezó viendiendo hamburguesas y salchipollos en la puerta de su casa y actualmente ha decidido instalar su puesto de venta en los exteriores del mercado de la ciudad de Lambayeque, los platos que prepara tienen mucha acogida, debido a la buena sazón con la que los prepara.
