Rosa Maria
Rosa María Ávila is a humble and simple woman who sells tostadas in a small hut made from coconut palm branches. She requested this loan to buy supplies for making her tostadas such as chicken, lettuce, chilis, onion, cheese and tortilla chips, and also to buy sodas.

Rosa is married to Juan Mario Gatica who grows corn and beans. She has three children. Two of her children are in elementary school and one is in high school. She tells us that this loan will help her a lot since it means she will be able to buy a little more in the way of ingredients and make more tostadas. Above all, she will also be able to buy sodas. Previously she sold fresh water with natural flavors but her customers are asking her for soda and so she will buy it in order to please her customers.

Rosa is very happy with her business which has helped her a lot in covering her family expenses and, above all, her children's expenses. She is able to buy her children's school supplies and, when they get sick, she is able to buy them medicine. Rosa hasn't been in her business for long. She started the business because she needed to make money to cover her household expenses and provide her children with an education. She will continue working every day. She is keen to expand her business since it is a great support for her family as they make money and don't have too many unmet needs because they always have enough to buy the bare essentials.
