A loan of $250 helped to buy a kitchen and tables for her business.


Rosa Purificacion's story

Rosa, age 52, lives with her two children who are independent but provide economic help for household expenses. Her house is located in the district of Guadalupe in the city of Chepen.

Rosa sells food and beverages, and prepares meals depending on the seasons of the year. She's been in business for over five years and has a fixed customer base who go to her daily.

She is requesting a loan in the amount of 700 PEN to add a new kitchen and tables to her business. With this investment she will be able to attend to more customers and cook larger quantities in order to meet the current demand.

Rosa has no other debts and she has good references from her neighbors and friends who are familiar with her daily work.
