A loan of $1,000 helped for cement, paint and telephone booths.


Rosa Maria's story

Rosa lives in an urban zone in El Suburbio. Due to the lack of employment opportunities she had to invest her savings in phone booths and computer equipment. Her mother helped her with part of the house she could use to build and set up her small business.

She offers national phone call service at a very low rate and also sells all sorts of things in her small locale. She works from very early in the morning every day.

She worries because she wants to provide a better life for her son. This is why she needs a loan to improve her house buying cement, paint and some additional phone booths.

In the future, she’d like to have an Internet café and expand her business.
