A loan of $650 helped operating capital.


Rosalia Rosario's story

Rosalia is 44, and she is currently single. She has two daughters, but they are not dependents. The house where she lives is hers, but she does not have the documents to support this.

Rosalia sells sweets like candies, cookies, and chocolates, etc. Because she takes advantage of her location, which is on a university campus in front of the medicine and biochemistry sections, she also sells gloves, syringes, and other things. She has been doing this for a long time.

There are no other similar businesses near hers. Therefore, there is not much competition.

The loan is for working capital to buy merchandise to stock her business.

This is Rosalia’s third loan. She demonstrated excellent behavior with her two previous loans. There has not been any negative behavior on her part in the financial system.
