Rosa Melida's story

Rosa, 54, is an immigrant from Colombia, she lives in Ibarra with her children.
Rosa sells frozen treats in the street, which she has been doing for several years, supporting her home through this work.

Rosa is a single mother seeking to support her children, who she works hard for. Rosa is known in her neighborhood and has a steady base of customers.

Rosa is soliciting a loan to buy a freezer to increase her sales capacity. Rosa is grateful to Kiva since she can meet her customer demand for the frozen treats she sells every day and improve life for her children.
