Rosalvina's story

Rosalvina, 56, shares her married life with Juan, 53. They are proud to have led their children along a good path and succeeded in their becoming upstanding citizens. She owns a house built of substantial materials. She and her husband carry out a variety of activities and they succeeded in building their home where they currently carry out a sustainable business: a grocery store. They've been in this business together for almost 9 years and were able through it to provide a quality education for their children. To improve their income they decided to add mobile phone recharge services to their business. She feels happy with her business because she spends almost all her time alongside her husband and together they can make decisions that benefit the family economy. Since the grocery business requires constant resupplying and investing in various products, they want to buy foodstuffs and non-perishable items at wholesale and to do so want to access a loan with help from your financial institution. Her future plans point towards home construction and the completion of a second story so they can start a room rental business. They need 1,000 new soles to buy merchandise alike rice and sugar, among others at wholesale.
