Rosa Francisca
Ms. Rosa Francisca runs her own in-home general store. She accepts both cash and credit. She obtains her goods from the oriental market and from supply trucks. She started out with a simple business because she did not have that much capital, which impeded her from offering a wide selection of products. For this reason, she is now requesting a new loan, which will be invested in her business because her busy season is approaching. She dreams of improving her home.
