Rosa has been working in restaurants and doing cleaning work for the past 15 years but this is the first time anyone has ever given her the opportunity and capital to start her own business. Her friends and family tell her that she makes the best Ecuadorian food around. This loan will give Rosa the opportunity to purchase cooking and cleaning equipment as well as decorations for her food cart. It will help her to grow her food cart and attract new customers. As her business expands, Rosa hopes to save enough money to one day open her own storefront restaurant. Rosa has four children who she supports through her work; her husband drives a taxicab.
