A loan of $1,075 helped to stock her crafts business.

Rosa Isabel's story

Rosa, 55, is a a widow with 2 children. She says that she started her business 15 years ago after selling a "carro" [not sure--a push cart?] that she owned. She used the money that she got for the carro to buy merchandise that she resold to passing tourists. She then bought a case for displaying her merchandise and did so well that she was able to set up a shop on the beach where she operates her business now. She is applying for a loan that she will use to stock her business with the products--crafts, clothing, footwear, etc.--that she sells.
