Siempre Unidas De La Alborada Group's story

Rosita Vilma is a member of the "Siempre Unidas D. la Alborada" Group, along with 8 other people from the Comas District who elected her as president of their group's management committee.

Rosita Vilma is 34 years old and has 3 young children, who give her the motivation and incentive to succeed.

A year ago, she started selling "papa rellena" (stuffed potatoes) in the market. This went well, but as she had a 2-year-old baby, she decided to movre her business into her home. This is how she began offering a set menu and special dishes. She can now spend more time with her children and take care of her youngest child. Her work has enabled her to buy equipment to make the work easier, and she can also support her partner with household expenses.

Her next goal is to open a large restaurant and be able to serve more customers.

She will use the loan received to buy tables and chairs for her small catering business, enabling her to expand and, before long, to open her restaurant.

In this group: Rosita Vilma, Rosa Victoria, Maria Evelina, Vilma Mercedes, Martha, Jose Carlos, Dalila, Roger Fernando, Robert Wilmer
