Rosa's loan finished fundraising,

Rosa's story

Rosa is an enterprising woman, well-known for working hard and wanting to improve herself. She has two sources of income, a small eatery and selling tortillas.

She is applying for a Kiva loan through Aldea Global to buy supplies that she will use to make her tortillas and food to sell. Her profit margins have improved as she currently makes regular food sales to members of a road construction crew. Additionally, she has her regular tortilla buyers who are owners of eateries in the municipal market.

The profits obtained from her previous loans were used to buy a tortilla-making machine that helps her save on raw materials, and her eatery was also the result of an investment made with previous loans.
