Rossana's story

Sra. Rossana Báez is 32 years old and has been married to Sr. Cristhian Palacios for 4 years. They have a young son who is 16 months old.

Prior to having her own business, Sra. Rossana worked for her father who operated a driving school. There she worked as a secretary and also as a driving instructor. Later she was given the chance to work abroad and decided to travel with her husband in search of better financial opportunites.

When they returned to their own country, and in light of having a baby boy, Sra. Rossana chose to open a grocery store. She added on a miniature soccer field (fútbol 5) and electronic games, which are managed by her husband.

She believes that her business will continue to grow with the help of her loan. She will be able to buy goods at a lower cost and then charge lower prices to her customers.
