Maria Rosario's story

Maria Rosario L. makes and sells snacks from her home in the San Jose de la Vega neighborhood, which is a strategic area since many people pass through this neighborhood. Her business is named "Golosinas Los Almendros." She has 27 years of experience in this business, selling from Tuesdays through Sundays on a schedule from 5pm until 10pm. Among the items on her menu are tortas (sandwiches), bread with meat, tortilla with cheese, and tacos, and everything is very delicious. Chayito, as her customers call her, is a hardworking woman. Thanks to her business and her daily efforts, she has managed to pay for the education of her children. She is married, and her husband is a merchant. Her main dream is to have her business grow and improve the quality of her life.

This loan will be used to build kitchen cabinets and remodel her kitchen so that it will be neater and look better, and so that she can improve the quality of her food. This will allow her to provide better service for her customers in her snack-making business.
