Santa Rosa De Huaquillay Group's story

Sra. Rosa Ofelia, age 63, is married. Her husband supports her in all the challenges she faces. They have four grown children.

She is a member of the Santa Rosa de Huaquillay group, which consists of 9 people who are her neighbors. They are residents of the Comas district.

For nine years, Sra. Rosa has been involved with the sale of beauty products. She began selling a few products on an itinerant basis, going from house to house. Later, she got the courage to enlarge her business and paid to rent a stall in the market in her area. Her work has succeeded in making her business grow. She has added to her stock and met her personal expenses.

Her next goal is to get her own shop. The loan applied for will be used for the purchase of more merchandise.

In this group: Rosa Ofelia, Rosemary, Manuel Carlos, Rosa Maria, Maria Ysabel, Julia, Elizabeth, Miriam Lucia, Liliana Bertila
