Rosa's story

Rosa is a member of the Mujeres Independientes (Independent Women) Community Bank.

Rosa lives with her partner, is 56 years old, and has six children who are 37, 35, 32, 30 and the youngest is 11 who is studying in public school.

Rosa was working in her stamping workshop in Gamarra and was neglecting her youngest son. She had to leave her job to spend more time with her child and left her eldest son in charge of the business. This is when she decided to start a shop in her home and begin to sell. She purchased a glass case for her shop.

Rosa needs a loan of 3,400 soles in order to purchase merchandise for her shop for mother's day. She's going to buy rice, sugar, oil, and milk at wholesale.

Since joining FINCA, she has learned how a community bank works. She is the treasurer. She learned how to cope as she was very timid. Rosa's dream is to grow her business more with more merchandise.
