A loan of $1,200 helped to buy beverages and canned goods.


Rosa Maria's story

Rosa is 41 years old, lives in Fortín de Guayaquil (a Peruvian zone with dirt roads and hills) and has a grocery store where she sells vegetables, canned goods, meats, etc.

She began working to raise her child in a suitable life so he would be able to study. She works in the store from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. everyday. Her store is located in the front of her cane home. She sells beverages, rice, sugar, canned goods, etc. Her biggest problem is the dust that builds up from the roads when vehicles pass by.

With the loan she plans to buy beverages and canned goods to supply her store since she wants to enlarge it. In the future she wants her son to successfully finish school and expand her store to other locations.
