Rosa's story

Rosa is 35 years old. She is an entrepreneurial woman and loves to work. She is married but, so far, has no children. She lives in her own home that she built with her husband, whose name is Yuri. Together, they have put their best effort toward succeeding.

Rosa's business is selling groceries and basic household goods. Every day, starting in the early hours of the morning, she opens the doors of her store to serve her customers, who come to her establishment to look for some item with the assurance that they will find what they need there. Rosa's grocery store is the only one in her neighborhood, and this is why business is good. Business is also good because of the cordiality and friendliness that Rosa expresses through each one of her words. Her words are perfect, and for that, her customers are always grateful.

Rosa started this business just six months ago, and she assures us this was the best career decision she could have made. The thing she likes best about her work is talking with her customers and seeing them start their day with a smile. She thinks the hardest thing has been getting used to waking up early to work in her store. All the same, she knows that this is her job and that she has to do it. She hopes that in the future her business will grow and bring her better income.

This is her first loan with Kiva partner MFP, and for this, Rosa is grateful to all of the people who have made it possible for her to receive this loan to continue doing her work with better results. She promises to make her payments on time. She is grateful to be part of her communal bank because she has observed that all of the members are responsible and very loyal.

With the money requested (S/. 800), Rosa will purchase a certain number of items to stock her grocery store with eggs, milk, vegetables, and fruits.
