Rosario Maria's story

Mrs. Rosario lives in the Villa Primero de Mayo area. Her business is the sale of food from her home. Monday through Friday she only sells dinner, and lunch and dinner on Saturdays and Sundays. She is well-known in the neighborhood for the food she prepares. She lives in her own house and she will use the loan to improve her patio and buy new plastic tables and chairs to sell lunch from Monday through Friday. She counts on the help of two of her daughters who study at night and help her on the weekends. She is a hard worker who has worked for a long time with loans helping to increase her capital and improve her business.
