Rosmery's story

Señora Rosmery belongs to the communal bank, "Cuidad de los Tres Pisos," and lives in the province of Lamas in the department of San Martín. She is single, is 55-years-old, and is the mother of 5 children who are already independent. She is a preschool teacher. At first she was working but she tells us that she stopped working since she lost her job. She had the idea to become independent and generate her own income, which is why she decided to start a business of selling food. Little by little she earned experience in this work and now she is very well-known and loved by her customers. Currently she continues with her same business attending to her customers who come to her restaurant daily. She personally attends to them with her good cooking and charisma. With this loan of 2,000 PEN, she hopes to invest in the purchase of rice and sugar in sacks, various types of vegetables, eggs, and chickens. She also will buy kitchen utensils to replace those she has currently and to be able to offer better service to her customers. Rosmery feels very certain that she will get ahead and has a strong desire to do so. She wants to secure a peaceful life, and she is thankful to Manuela Ramos for contributing to her being able to fulfill her dreams and goals.
