Rosa Lina's story

Rosa is 48 years old. She lives in Nueva Guadalupe, in San Miguel department, with her two children aged 22 and 20. Rosa's business is slaughtering pigs, selling fruit and selling pupusas (thick tortillas stuffed with a savory filling). She has been in these businesses for 10 years and works from Monday to Saturday. Rosa needs money to invest in her business. She is requesting a loan so that she can buy merchandise such as corn, cooked pork paste, soft cheese, tomatoes; fruit such as watermelons, papaya, mangos, and also pigs so that she can continue selling their meat. This loan will be very useful to Rosa since she will be able to increase her inventory and have more products available for her customers. This will allow her to provide them with a better service. Her goal is to remain competent in the market and to strengthen her business every day with the best merchandise, thereby helping her children to live better lives and prepare themselves for the future.
