Las Rosas 2 Group's story

Diana is 33, married and has 4 children in education. Giovanni, 17, is the oldest and studying 2nd year of Baccalaureate. Luis Adolfo is 12 and is in his 4th year of primary school; Cirilo is 10 and in year 6 of primary school; Anelis is just 4. Her husband is called Elvino and he is a police officer.

Diana sells groceries and will use her loan to buy grocery products such as milk, soft drinks, eggs, soup, chillies etc. Diana hopes that her business will be a success, perhaps not overnight, but she is hopeful that it will improve things for her, as it provides an income that helps her and her family a lot. She would like her business to grow so as to be able to provide a better education for her children. Her oldest son would like to continue studying to become a top doctor, and so she is hopeful that things work out well.

Diana is a member of the “Rosas 2” group, a group of 15 working women who are committed to their work and to getting ahead. These include: Embertina, Cergia, Natividad, Agustina, Elsa, Gaudencia, Luciana, Edith, Margarita, Olivia, Anadelina, Ramira, Abundia, Ma Isabel.
