Rosa Hilda De Jesús's story

Rosa Hilda is 64 years old and resides in her own home with her son and grandson. Doña Rosa has a business selling beverages such as sodas, water, juices, tea, and others. She sells as a street vendor from strategic locations within the area. Rosa is well-informed about different events that take place near her home, so she takes advantage of these festival days to generate sales. She is full of energy and does not hesitate to travel to different places where festivals, fairs, soccer games, concerts, and other events are taking place so that she can set up her business. As a result, her sales have increased.

Being an enterprising woman, Rosa wants to increase her level of sales. For this reason, she needs to have a variety of beverages to offer to her customers at different events they attend. This led her to request a loan so that she can buy a variety of beverages such as sodas, juices, water, iced teas, and other drinks that are in demand among her customers. By working in this manner, she hopes to generate more income to help improve her quality of life and that of her family.
