Rosmeri's story

Ros Meri, 39, is a single mother and has a nine-year-old daughter, Naydelin, for whom she wants to provide a good future. Ros Meri lives in the house she bought with money earned through her daily work. She has a job that requires much patience and good customer service. Her business is selling beverages and food products. For two years she has been working alone, earning an income especially from the sale of beverages, since the place where she lives is very hot.

With the loan she has obtained, and thanks to the lenders, she will be able to buy more food for her store and continue working. This is her seventh loan and, once again, she is grateful to lenders because they are people who keep her in business. She is a responsible, active member of her communal bank. The 3,000 PEN loan, plus her profits, will be used to buy more merchandise such as cereals, beverages, vegetables, etc.
