Rosa Isabel
Rosa is 39 years old and resides in Las Orquídeas in Guayaquil. She lives in a house made of reeds with her three children (ages 18, 13, and 9). Rosa operates a food stall at a school in the district where she lives. She started this business after receiving permission from the priest at the Catholic Church to sell food to the school children during recess.

She began selling a few snacks to the children and gradually expanded her menu. Rosa now works from 7am until 12:15pm, Monday through Friday. She sells hot dogs for $0.70 and soft drinks $0.35. Rosa lacks a few supplies for her business, so she wants to use her loan to buy display cases, soft drinks, and food products. In the future, she hopes to open a well-stocked store in her house.
