A loan of $850 helped to buy rice, fish and greens.


Rosa De Las Mercedes's story

Rosa is 45 and hopes to grow her food sales business in coming years. She began working with a friend who lives nearby, and she now works from 10:00 until 19:00. The main challenge she faces is dealing with crime. She is divorced, and has a daughter who is 16 and studies in a fiscal school.
Rosa's dream is to have her own shop to sell food and to make improvements to her home. She wants to use this credit to buy greens, rice, fish and thus to prepare more food for her regular customers.
