Candida Rosa's story

Cándida, 49, is single, a merchant, and the mother of five children ages 12, 21, 26, 29, and 33. She says she began with a small grocery store in her house, which she had to close for health reasons, and then decided to open a food stand with her own funds. She began this food business when she was 43 with her son´s help. Cándida would like her food to be known throughout the market. She is satisfied with her sales, since the business generates daily income and is profitable.

She needs the loan to buy wood, corn, corn flour, meat, cabbage, beans, oil, rice, and all the raw materials she needs to prepare the food. The loan will bring her much needed help, letting her invest, increase her production, and earn more income for her family.

She plans to air condition her house, showcase her food, and attract more steady customers. She wants to be one of the area´s best merchants so that she can increase her profits and give her children a better education.
