A loan of $525 helped purchase basic grains, meat, chicken, fruit, and vegetables to augment her sales of meals.


Rosa Elena's story

Rosa continues to sell meals in the streets from her cart, courageously pushing her supplies various kilometers. She is a single mother with 3 children in school. Rosa also sells meals in her house, but she sells more in the streets. That is why she works so hard every day.

Rosa's goal is to continue improving her house, and for that reason, she would like to have a fixed kiosk where she could obtain better results in sales and income.

This new loan will be used to buy basic grains, meat, chicken, fruit, and vegetables to introduce variety into her plates.
