Rosa Maria
Rosa María R. Pérez is 59 years old and a widow. She has 2 children. She runs a cafe. She has been working in this business for 30 years. She started this business when she was very young, as she has always liked to work and get ahead. Initially she did not have a stable place where she could offer her food, and she would work around the park. Later, she decided to continue with and better equip her business. The financing she seeks now will be capital for the purchase of sodas, juices, grains and similar items. Rosa's dream is to make improvements to her home.
