A loan helped to buy and sell a diverse range of furniture.

Rosa's story

Rosa is a 36-year-old single lady who is a merchant. She is the mother of 2 daughters; one is 21 years old and the other one is 19 years of age. They both attend school, and she lives with them in the house of her late mother.

This is her third loan, and it is intended to buy a diverse range of furniture to resell. She used the previous loans for the same business. Her greatest dream is to become a successful, large-scale entrepreneur.
