Rosa
Rosa, 41, is a married woman. She lives with her husband and her two children in her own house.

Rosa makes a living selling chicken in the morning in her sales stall in the market. In the afternoon she sells food on the sidewalk of her house. She started this job to improve her quality of life and that of her family.

She has been doing this job for five years. She began selling "anticuchos" [grilled beef hearts], "salchipollo" [fried potatoes, hot dogs, and chicken], and "salchipapas" [fried potatoes and hot dog] outside her home, but in time she was able to set herself up better.

This is her first loan with Kiva. She's grateful for the financial help received because it will help her improve her business. She also promises to make her payments punctually.

With the requested amount of 1000 soles [PEN] she'll buy supplies such as rice, olives, and condiments to prepare "juanes" [a traditional regional dish similar to a tamal made with rice and wrapped in a bijao leaf]. She'll also buy chicken for her sales stall.
