Rosa Celestina's story

Rosa is a member of the “Mujeres Floreciendo” (Women in Bloom) communal bank. She lives near Chiquintad Parish, a place where residents raise animals, farm and are merchants. Many of its residents work in the city in different jobs.

Rosa is 51 years old, married and has five children who are 31, 29, 27, 24 and 19 years of age. Her oldest son is single and lives independently. The next three children are married and independent and the youngest is single, employed and helps her economically. Her husband works in construction as a bricklayer. Their joint efforts have made the construction of their house possible.

Rosa sells Herbalife natural products, an activity she’s been in for two years. She works Sunday through Sunday with no fixed schedule.

This is the third loan she’s taken in the communal bank which she was invited to join by a friend. She will use the money to buy Herbalife natural products to increase her business. Her goal is to expand her business.
