A loan of $425 helped to buy metal sheeting and wood beams for roofing.

Rosa Amelia's story

Rosa’s a hardworking merchant; she has her own snack bar in a market. She strives daily to earn her daily bread as does her husband who is a taxi driver. She’s used loans to invest in her small business and gradually move it forward and this time she wants to improve her kitchen’s roof because when it rains water leaks in. She wants to get ready before winter arrives which will be shortly which is why she needs to buy metal sheeting and wood beams since her budget is insufficient to buy roofing purlins. Her future plan includes building a porch at home so that her husband can store the taxi since they currently have to pay parking fees for it every night and this is very expensive.
