Rosa Estela
Rosa, 44, is married and has three children. She has made and sold pupusas [thick corn tortillas] since she was a small girl, when her mother taught her. Rosa runs her own grocery store.

Rosa buys ingredients for her pupusas three times a week, and the supplies for her store every Saturday. For this, she must travel to the city.

Rosa is requesting a loan to Fundación Campo to buy more products for her store and some furniture for her pupusería [an establishment that sells pupusas]. Her goal is to improve her income greatly by investing in two different activities. Her dream is to be able to give her children access to higher education.
