Rosa Belen's story

Rosa lives in Libertad where she has a small store where she sells basic necessities. She opened the store when she was 21 years old because she decided that she had to help out with the household expenses in some way. Her husband is a bricklayer and his work is sporadic. When he has no contracts they have found themselvesin financial trouble, especially after the children came. Two years ago she started the store and it is going very well for her. She manages it and works there starting very early in the morning. Since it is located in her home she can take care of her children easily. She sells rice, sugar, grains, etc., which she hopes to buy when the loan is approved. In the future, she hopes to expand her business and provide a better quality of life.
