A loan of $1,725 helped to buy a deep fat fryer and supplies that she needs to make her meals so that she can meet a high level of demand.

Rosalba's story

Rosalba is a very hard-working person who has fought hard for a long time in order to get her family ahead in life. She used to sell meals in the city center but, owing to circumstances beyond her control, she had to move her business into her home. This is where she now offers her food service to people in her area. Thanks to the fact that she offers very good customer service and her meals are very good quality, Rosalba has managed to attract a large number of customers. As a result, she enjoys very good sales. However, the tools that she uses in her cooking are no longer up to the job of serving all her customers. She is looking for a loan so that she can buy a deep fat fryer and supplies that she needs for making her meals in order to meet the high level of demand that she has for her products. This will enable her to keep making progress in her business and she will be able to make the income she needs to support her household. She will also be able to provide the members of her household with a better quality of life and continue making progress, in spite of the difficulties that she has encountered in her life. Some time ago, violence snatched two of her children from her. Since that time, she has been working hard so that her business provides her with the money she needs to improve her own living conditions as well as those of her family.
