Rosa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To buy a Pyrex tray and glasses. She also wishes to buy replacement parts and tools to repair cars and venture into the trade of selling used cars.
Rosa, age 23, lives with 24 year old Cristian. They have two children, Yanela and Dana. They live in her parents’ house. Rosa sells desserts and aperitifs according to the season. In winter she sells “leche agria” (a dairy product similar to yogurt) and “mazamorra” (corn porridge). Now that it is summer she sells juices made from oranges or other fruits. She carries out her business in the doorway of her house, and it is going very well for her. Many of her neighbors like the food she makes, and they seek out her food on their days off. This enterprising woman likes all types of sales. Later on she plans to also buy and sell used cars. She will do this to support her husband with the household expenses because he has gone to work in a mine. This is her 11th loan with MFP. As a long-time member of her communal bank she is grateful for all of the support that she gets. She is also grateful to all of the people who made the loan possible. She plans to use the requested loan to buy a Pyrex tray and glasses. She also wishes to buy replacement parts and tools to repair cars and venture into this new business.
