Rosa Candida P. D. M. is 40 years old and lives in Ciudad Arce, located in the Department of La Libertad. She lives with her husband, and two young children who are in elementary school.
Rosa earns money by working every day as a traveling saleswomen selling clothing in the streets of Ciudad Arce. Rosa leaves her home every morning with the hope of selling more clothes than she did the day before. It is important since, although her husband works and has a regular income, it’s quite low. This is the reason that Rosa decided to have her own business.
She is very hardworking and divides her time among her household chores, taking care of her children, and her business. All of this she does with the goal of a better life.
Rosa requests a loan so that she can buy clothing in different sizes, styles, and colors, both for men and women, and in this way increase her sales.
