Rositati's story

When times are hard, it’s natural for owners of a grocery store to consume items from their own shelves. Rositati (56) runs a shop in a market near her village. She earns $15 a day, which barely supports her family. With stocks low, her shelves look bare, and sales are suffering. Rositati requests a loan to buy fresh supplies, as she knows new lines will restore sales and income for her family.
