Rosa Argentina's story

Rosa, 39, is a retail merchant. She is married and is the mother of 3 children. Two of her children are living independently, and the youngest, who is 15, is still in her care. Rosa started her business with the help of her husband, who gave her the start-up capital. She decided to start a small grocery store. At this time, she's had 2 years of experience with her store. It has allowed her to have financial independence, contribute to the household expenses, and support her youngest child in school. Her husband works repairing radiators, and with his earnings he helps to pay the family's expenses. Rosa needs a loan to buy a used freezer, basic grains, cooking oil, cleaning products, juices, and soft drinks. As the Christmas season is one of the best times for business, she doesn't want to miss out on the opportunity to make sales. One of her plans is to expand her business by selling clothing and meat. This way, she could gradually diversify her business.
