A loan of $850 helped to purchase rice, sugar, coffee, oil, and other groceries.


Rosana Leonor's story

Rosana lives in Quevedo, is 34 years old, and is married. Her husband is a security guard and together they have four children, all of whom study in the neighborhood school. Rosana has a small grocery store in their house that she started several years ago. She started with buying a little bit of merchandise that she placed on a board in the front part of her house. Today she has a store with a glass cooler where she displays her products for sale. It is an example of how, little by little, she is achieving her goals. She will use the requested loan to purchase rice, sugar, coffee, oil, and other groceries. One of her worries is when the suppliers do not arrive to deliver the products she requests. Rosana's future goal is to be able to expand her store and continue growing.
