Rosa Amada's story

Rosa is a very enterprising, honest, and hard-working person. She lives with her husband and her two children in a community in the south of Honduras. Rosa’s business is a small grocery store. The loan is needed to buy soft drinks, meat, corn, milk, beans, salt, waters, pills, soaps, spices, toilet paper, cookies, and churros. With the loan she hopes to have more merchandise to offer in order to cover the daily requests that she receives from her customers. With the income she receives, Rosa wishes to improve her and her family’s economic situation. In the future, Rosa hopes that her business becomes a small market, thanks to the investment made in it and she dreams to see her children and grandchildren graduated and become good people with better opportunities.
