Rosa's story

Mrs. Rosa González Rodríguez is 71 years old, lives in "Del Porvenir" District, Trujillo Province, Libertad Department in Peru. She belongs to the Communal Bank "Unidas para el Progreso II." She has a 1st grade education, but says she learned to read and write with the help of relatives. She is a single mother of one grown son.

Rosa sells food in the corner of her home. With her first loan of PEN 300, she bought a grill and some benches. With this loan of PEN 1,100 she will buy beef and organ meats to prepare the food she sells. Her dream is to be able to sell food every day.
