Rosa Amelia's story

Rosa gets up very early to prepare the ingredients she will use in her breakfasts. Her love of cooking started at a very young age. This was an opportunity for her to start her own business in the small city where she has been for over 15 years. With her daughter's support, Rosa strives to serve her customers.

She has opted for a loan with Kiva along with MiCrédito, which she plans to use to buy rice, beans, sugar, and oil, since these are the ingredients she most uses in her dishes.

In the future she hopes to be able to buy a plot of land to have more space for her soda [a typical Costa Rican food stall or cafe], have more customers, and be able to offer jobs to other people.
