A loan of $875 helped to buy fish and plantains.


Rosa Veronica's story

Rosa, despite all of the tests that she has had in her life at 26 years old, has been able to get ahead along with her two children. These tests have fortified her character, transforming her into a business woman. Her business is the selling of fast food. With a coal oven she prepares grilled fish and plantains. Her husband worked in this business initially, but after their separation she took it under her charge. In general she works from Monday to Sunday, 7am to 11am. She only works in the mornings because her point of sale is the market of Playas and generally the activity there is in the morning. Since she is a single mother she hopes to be able to obtain credit in order to purchase supplies and fish, which is what she needs for her sales. She is hoping with time to grow the business and her capital through work.
