View original language description ↓
Rosa belongs to the Las Dalinas 2 communal bank, located in the Human Alana Sisley settlement, Block Ñ, Lot 5 in the Yarina Cocha district of the Ucayali province. She is 29 years old and has two children. With her first loan through the Manuela Ramos group of 300 Nuevo Sol (Peruvian currency) she decided to invest in a business to sell refreshments and popsicles in different places in the area. In the morning she prepares her products and in the afternoon she goes out to sell them. She enjoys what she does and has fun getting to know people who become her customers. With her business she is able to educate her young children who still need a great deal from her. With this loan of 800 Nuevo Sol ($300), which she will pay back in six months) she will purchase ingredients for her products, local fruit, sugar, lemon, barley, and ice. Rosa is both mother and father to her children and with this small business she is able, with a great deal of effort, to move forward in her life.
