Linda Rosa's story

Ms. Linda Rosa E. G. is 51 years old. For the past 7 years she has sold hemp hammocks and new and used clothes. On Sundays she sells candy and soft drinks at her community's soccer field in Jicaro Galan. She is married to Mr. Santos Pedro Mayorga, with whom she has 4 children, all of them already grown up.

Linda, along with her husband, purchases and sells the mentioned products. She asks for the loan in order to expand her business. She wishes to purchase several hammocks and clothes to sell them in Christmas. In this area hammocks are easily sold as it is an area of hot climate, where it is very warm, and people prefer to lie in hammocks rather than in beds, because they are cooler.

She feels very happy because her business generates an income for her to support her home.
