Rosa Ermelinda's story

Rosa Ermelinda lives with her small son, who is her biggest reason to make an effort and get ahead. She has a store in which she markets perishable and essential products for the home. This business is that which has permitted her to be able to count on having all that is necessary to get ahead, and at the same time count on all of the food and what is necessary to live with dignity.

It is because of this that Rosa would like to count on more products in the store. Since the colony has been growing it needs more products to attend to all of the people that order products with which she doesn't have, which is the reason she requests a loan through which she can buy rice, beans, sugar, dairy products, drinks and more others which are necessary in a good store. This is very important for Rosa, since in this way she won't lose new clients and will be able to increase her earnings in a big way.
