Juana Rosa's story

Juana Rosa is married and has 3 small children. She has had a grocery store located in her house for 3 years. She started out selling sweet oranges, bananas and other types of vegetables that she carried on a tray. Later she bought a refrigerator and started to sell fresh juices from her house. She now has a well-stocked grocery store where she sells consumer staples. This business generates good profits and it continues to grow. Thanks to the support that the Fundacion Leon 2000 has provided her, she has been able to get ahead and invest in working capital. She will use this loan to buy eggs, rice, cooking oil, sugar, beans, bread, milk, tiste [a traditional drink made from corn and cocoa], and other products.
