Rosa Marta
Rosa, 44, is originally from the island of Ometepe and today lives in Granada. She lives on her own while her husband is away, and works as a food vendor selling quesillos, a typical and flavorful Mexican dish that is very popular with the tourists that visit the city. She is a mother of two.

She started making quesillos when she was very young helping by her mother. She decided to start her own business and originally sold enchiladas to help with the expenses around the house during the time she was pregnant with her first child. Later she discovered that she earned more money by selling quesillos and decided to work with a friend who could help her find better and cheaper ingredients.

Her children help her with the business, selling their products in Granada and the surrounding neighborhoods. Her husband also helps with the household expenses by sending money home.

She will use her loan to buy cheese, onions, vinegar, tortillas and sour cream, which are all ingredients that make up the quesillo. Rosa hopes that the loan will help her since the busy season is approaching and she will be able to offer more products to her clients.

After she pays off this loan she wants to use the profits combined with a new loan to make repairs on her home.
