El Rosario Group's story

This group is called Rosary. The members chose this name because it is the first that came to their mind. This story is about Mrs. María, since she is the representative of this group. She is 26 years old, married to Dionisio, who is a farmer, and has two children: one in the first-year of preschool and the other in the first-year of elementary. She has a grocery store more than three years now.

She started this business to help with household expenditures and pay for her children's education. She also works to have more income and have a good quality of life. She will use the loan to buy merchandise such as: milk, oil, eggs, sodas, light bulbs, soap, rice, beans, etc.

Mrs. María’s goal is to grow her business and plans on expanding her locale that way it can be well stocked with a larger variety products and that way can increase profits.

She thanks FRAC and Kiva lenders for the loans, offering her opportunities, and giving her the confidence to believe in herself because she will be able to invest in her business, have a better quality of life with her family, and have a brighter future.

These are the people that make up the group Rosario: Juana, María, Melita and Marlen sell jewely, groceries, pots, clothes, and poultry.

In this group: Juana, Maria, Melita, Marlen
