Rosaura Mercedes
View original language description ↓
Rosaura is 30-years-old and lives with her husband and one-year-old son.


This woman has always been in search of opportunities to generate her own sources of income. This is how she found the way to do it, which is selling all types of sweets outside of an elementary school. Years ago, she and her sister attended to a cafe, where she learned all about the movement of the business. Now she works outside of the school every day, except on weekends, when she is dedicated to raising and selling pigs. She has noticed that this brings her good profits. This is why she continues dedicating herself to this business.


Her constant motive is to improve the quality of life for her family.


Rosaura will invest this loan in the purchase of merchandise: sweets for her business and acquiring more pigs.
