Rosario's story

Rosario L. M. is 38. She has a mill to grind corn. She gets up at four in the morning to take care of her customers, and she works until five in the afternoon everyday. She also sells American clothes like shirts, skirts, pants and sweaters. Rosario is well known by her neighbors. She is very friendly and likeable, which has helped her to have good sales. She lives with her three children and her husband. He has a soldering shop. That way they take care of their children. Rosario’s monthly cost is $165.00. She takes in $480.00, generating $315.00 in earnings.

She needs the loan to buy underwear like bras, bikinis, socks, and a bundle of mixed clothes. The customers who go to grind corn buy clothes. She is now buying by the unit in a market in the city of Tegucigalpa. But, she wants to buy a bundle of clothes to get greater earnings.
