Rosario sells breakfast. She learned this work from her mother, who worked in the Ramada Market for more than 20 years and taught her the trade. Rosario has her own stall and sells breakfast all day. The products she offers are tea, coffee, "api" (a Bolivian breakfast drink made of corn), and turnovers.

Rosario has four children. As fate would have it, she is a single mother. But she is courageous and works hard to get her children ahead. Three of her children are students and one is a minor.

The loan she is requesting is to buy construction materials to finish the construction on her home. Her ambition is to have her own vehicle to be able to move her merchandise, and her desire is to see her children become professionals and honest people.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
