A loan of $850 helped to buy cheese and thus build up her provisions so when the winter season comes she won't have to pay high costs for the cheese.


Rosalba's story

Rosalba has worked for more than 20 years in coffee shops and restaurants. Thanks to the experience gained, today she has a business which known for offering its customers very good service and great quality products.

Approximately two years ago she rented a coffee shop in which her main product is buñuelos [cheese fritters]. This way she makes an income with which she contributes economically to support her home expenses, where she lives with her husband and her son. Rosalba has had many difficulties in her life, but she has always had her will to get ahead and continue to progress in life along with her family.

Due to the winter season, the cost of cheese is very high and therefore her earning margin decreases considerably. Because of this she is now looking for a loan to buy cheese and thus build up her provisions so that when the winter season comes she won't have to pay high costs for the cheese. This way her business will be able to continue to make a good profit margin. Therefore she will continue to generate the income that she requires in her home so that her family can have a good quality of life and better economic opportunities to move forward.
