Rosa has been in this business for 41 years. Initially, she sold sodas while walking around on the street. She started her business using personal savings. Now her store is open air but underneath a small roof. She says loans have helped her business grow incrementally. They have also helped her make many improvements to her house which has improved her quality of life. Rosa is single with one child.
