Rogelia Mercedes's story
Doña Rogelia is 58 years old, has 3 children and her husband works at a farm. She has been a partner of Manuela Ramos for seven years. With a first loan of S/.300.00 she bought a coal kitchen where she fried her fish, green bananas, chicken, etc. and prepared "juanes" (rice wrapped in leaves) "patarashca" (fish wrapped in leaves), and roast, all in small quantities.
With this loan of S/.2,000.00 Nuevos Soles, she will adapt her premises, buy paint, plates, glasses, cutlery, increase her clients and staff. Her restaurant is named "July Jessy". She is grateful to Manuela Ramos for having confidence in her.
