Rosa belongs to the Mujeres Lideres Community Bank group, located at 160 Jr. Pucallpa, in the Calleria district of the department of Ucayali. She is 52 years old and the mother of 3 children. Her husband is retired, but the income that he has doesn't provide enough for daily needs. She decided to invest the 300 soles from the first loan she received from Manuela Ramos/crediMUJER into drink sales.

With the earnings that she has made from the sale of her drinks, she bought a stereo that she rents out for different occasions. She gets up early to do household chores and then works selling drinks and renting out the stereo.

With this loan of 2400 soles ($850), which will be paid back in 6 months, she will purchase CDs. In addition, she will use the money to maintain the stereo equipment fix up her place.

Rosa is very pleased with the acheivements that she has had with her business.
