Rosa Elizabeth's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy corn, sugar, cinnamon, milk, rice, etc to make atol, rice milk, and other snacks to sell. She will also pay the rent for her store.

Rosa Elizabeth's story

Rosa is 50 years old and went to school until high school. She is married and her husband works in the public sector. She has three adult children who live elsewhere.

Rosa makes a living selling atol (a cornflour drink), rice and milk, and a variety of snacks. She has already been running the business for several years, which she started because she needed to support her husband with household expenses and taking care of their children. She gets up at 3 in the morning to pick up the milk and prepare the store to open at 5:30am.

With the previous loan that she received from Kiva, Rosa was able to invest in her business, and she was very responsible in paying the debt back on time. She needs a new loan to buy corn, sugar, cinnamon, milk, and rice, among other things, to make atol, rice and milk, and snacks to sell. She will also pay the rent for her store location.

Rosa's dream is to improve her income and always keep her business stable. She hopes to achieve her goal through hard work and the support of the loans.
