Rosa Maria
Mrs Rosa Maria M. is married and lives alone with her husband who works as a builder. Her children are already married and they all live in their own homes. This is why Rosa Maria started her grocery business. She also works in a 'maquiladora' (an assembly plant located on the US-Mexico border) in the evenings. She does this because she says that she hates not doing anything productive. When she found out about the loans which we offer, she applied for one because she would like to expand her grocery store. She is also extending her home because she has a dirt floor and she doesn't want her products to be covered in dust because it looks bad. For this reason, she would like to put down a solid floor as soon as possible and thereby give her neighbors a better impression when they come to buy from her. Also, her home is what her children will inherit in the future.

Rosa Maria inicio el negocio de abarrotes y trabaja en una maquiladora por la noche, porque dice que se desespera si no hace nada productivo, y ella al enterarse de los creditos que ofrecemos, se animo a tramitar su credito, porque es su interes agrandar la tienda de abarrotes, pero tambien esta ampliando su casa, ya que tiene piso de tierra y ella no quiere que se le empolven los productos, porque despues dan mal aspecto, por eso le interesa mucho poner el piso lo mas pronto posible y dar una mejor imagen a los vecinos cuando van a comprar y que ademas, se les quedara como herencia a los hijos en un futuro y asi ella tendra en que ocuparse, porque dice que ya se siente grande.
