Rey David 3 Group's story
Maria Rosa (the women in the fuchsia colored blouse) is a born entrepreneur. She is 55 years old and the mother of 2 boys that live with her and her husband. She makes pickled vegetables that she sells in the quantity requested by her customers. Also, in her community she sells beauty products such as lotions, shampoo, and cosmetics. She sells these items in the afternoon so she has time during the morning to take care of her family and so that she can generate more income to help with the expenses of the home. She's seeking a loan of $600 to invest in the purchase of merchandise such as creams, lotions, gels, and shampoos. This will permit her to increase the selection of products on offer to her clients, thus improving her income and bettering the quality of life of her family. She joined with Karla, Claudia del Carmen, and Delmy Yanira to form a women's solidarity group called, "King David 3". They support each other in finding ways to get ahead and improve the lives of their families.
