Rosa Nelly's story

Rosa, 34, completed sixth grade. Her husband works selling sweet bread. He goes to the capital to get the bread and sells it in the various municipalities and neighborhoods in the country’s department. She has four girls. One is 14 and in 7th grade, the second is 11 and in third grade, the third is 5 and in kindergarten and the youngest is two. She’s been gaining experience selling bread, cheese and curd since the age of 10 when she’d help her mother.

She will use the loan to build a retaining wall along the side of her house. She will pay labor costs and buy galvanized a metal tube, cyclone wire and another truckload of stone, cement and sand.

It’s worth mentioning that this wall she’s building will improve her quality of life because she’ll have more security. Her children won’t be exposed to danger in the street and will have security at night. This loan will help the family much.

In future, she’d like to continue working very hard to reach her set goals the main one being to provide education for her daughters so their lives will be different than hers who has had to work since she was very little. She asks the Creator to give her life to see her children become academically prepared.
