Rosa's story

Rosa has a convenience store and at night she sells hamburgers and salchipapas (dish made out of sausage and potatoes); her husband is a building custodian. With these as their main sources of income they support their two children and two grandchildren who they are responsible for. The store is located in her house, in Río Seco in Ciudad del Alto. She needs the loan to increase the inventory in the store. This is her third credit with Impro, since her good credit record allowes her to take out another loan, which will aid her in increasing the family’s income.
