A loan of $750 helped to buy supplies for making bread.

Rosa's story

Rosa is a member of the 'Granito de Mostaza' community bank. She is 37 years old and has three children. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for more than 10 years. Rosa has a bakery. She started out with $2.00, gradually added $10.00 and received a loan for $50.00. With this money, she bought flour for making bread but, back then, she didn't have much at all.

Rosa will use the loan that she is currently requesting to buy flour for making her bread. She is grateful for all the support that she has been given to help her continue in her business. Her goal is to own her own oven because she rents the one that she currently uses. Rosa enjoys the training sessions and says that she has learned a lot which has enabled her to have a good business.
