Rosa Amanda's story

Rosa Amanda lives with her husband and son. She sells food in order to cover her household expenses. Every day she sells her dishes such as gallo pinto (rice and beans), barbecued chicken, fried cheese and tajaditas (fried, sweet plantain). She is requesting a loan to buy rice, beans, plantains, cheese, oil, vegetables, bags and other products. This will give her more variety to offer her customers which will help her to make better income.
