Juliet Rose
Juliet Rose D. C., age 30, has been a member of ASHI since 2006. Her current request for a loan will be used to finance a business she plans for herself: a general store. She wants to help her husband support their family. For the past three years she has been busy taking care of their three small children, but now that the youngest child is three years old, she would like to do her part in earning money to provide for her family.

Manuel, Juliet’s husband, is a construction laborer. He supports his wife’s decision to manage her own business. He believes that if his wife can procure capital for starting up her business, she has the capacity and ability to make it grow and become profitable. He knows that she is motivated by the desire to see her children happy and well-educated. Both Manuel and Juliet would like to see the children eventually graduate from college, an opportunity that they themselves did not have.

Juliet intends to purchase inventory items for her store. This will include foodstuffs, beverages, grocery items, and basic commodities.
