Rosa Maria
Rosa Maria B. is from the village of Paso de la Reyna. She is 28 and has a common law marriage to Julio Cesar Magadan Torres. She has two children, one is 8 years old and goes to school and the other is 6 months old. Rosa says her husband went to the United States 4 months ago because he had to, since there were no jobs in their town. Before that he worked the land and earned almost nothing, so he left the town to be able to give his family a better life. Rosa has a grocery store that she started when her husband sent her money from the United States. In her store she sells sugar, rice, beans, soap, toilet paper, cookies, oil, candles, and other basic necessities. Rosa is requesting the loan in order to purchase more products to stock her store. She says that her sales are very good since hers is the only grocery store in her neighborhood, and besides there are very few stores in the town, so the majority of her neighbors buy from her. She would like more capital so she can purchase more products and have a larger location so that the people in her town don't have to go to another town to shop for their basic necessities. Additionally this allows her to help with her family's expenses.
