Rosa Patricia's story

Rosa is married and has 2 children who are still dependent upon the family. She lives on the city's margins in her in-laws' house. Her husband works for a soft drink enterprise as a distributor' using his own delivery vehicle. In addition, Rosa has a 2nd activity, selling “tucumanas,” cheese pies with meat, chicken and vegetables. She sells them on weekends along the public lands of her zone.

It's worth mentioning that Rosa belongs to the “Carinositos” (Loving Ones) communal bank.

Rosa needs the loan to buy soft drinks at wholesale and, in time, to become a distributor for her zone.
