Rosa Margarita's story

Rosa Margarita is 31 years old and she lives at home with her two young daughters, Katherine and Karen. They are 6 and 3 years old respectively and they are in their first years of school. For Rosa, her daughters are everything to her and she works very hard to provide for them and to give them a life different from the one she lived. Rosa sells essential goods from a small store that she has managed to establish in her home. She is a trustworthy woman who is very kind and she has won the respect of her entire neighborhood. They prefer to buy from her especially because she always has what they need, and, above all, they receive good customer service. Lately she has been thinking of expanding her business and so she decided to supply her store with a variety of products that are attractive to her clients. But in order to set her plan in motion she needs a loan from Integral (Kiva Field Partner). She will purchase essential goods, such as: drinks, rice, beans, cooking oil, sweets, bathroom tissue, pastries, coffee, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, etc. This will help her attract more clients and she will accomplish her dream of provide her daughters with better opportunities.
