A loan of $500 helped tables and chairs.


Rosalia De Los Angeles's story

Rosalia is 21 and a hard worker with great aspirations for her family. On weekdays, she sells "encebollados," a typical Ecuadorian dish of fish, plantains, and bread. Her cooking occupies her from 7 a.m. to noon, and she sells each dish at a price of US$ 1.50. Most of her clients enjoy her meals for breakfast. Rosalia wants very much to grow her business and seeks a loan to buy tables and chairs to better accomodate her customers. In the future, she hopes to improve her family's prospects by opening her own bakery.
