A loan of $1,075 helped to buy rice, sugar, oil, and to improve her home and store..


Rosa Baltazara's story

47 year old Rosa is married and has 2 children. She began selling groceries with very little merchandise, selling cola and rice. Later, she created a grocery store in her home and now this is the source of livelihood for her and her family. She opens her business at 7:00am. There was a while when her health was bad and for this reason her store was doing a little badly. But, now she has recuperated and is doing well. At the weekends she sells fast food from a stall close to her home. She longs for her store to grow more and to be able to supply it with more products. She will use the loan to buy more groceries such as rice, sugar, and oil and to improve her home and store.
