A loan of $1,425 helped to buy tables and chairs in order to provide her customers with better food service.

Rosa Elvira's story

Rosa is married and has three children. Because the income her husband generates is not enough to support the household expenses, she decided to start her own business. She did this with the thought of generating income with which she could contribute financially to her household. This way they could have a better quality of life.

She started a food business approximately two years ago, and she also sells her customers basic needs products. Given that her business is located on a main highway, her customers are primarily truck drivers and people who move about the area.

With the idea of offering better service to her customers, Rosa applies for a loan that will allow her to buy tables and chairs. With those items she will be able to provide her customers with better food service.

This will make her business more attractive to her customers, and her sales will increase considerably. This will allow her to generate greater income for her household. This way she will contribute to having a better quality of life and greater opportunities for financial advancement.
