A loan of $400 helped to buy cooking ingredients.

Rosa's story

Rosa, 60, has been married to Hugo for 47 years and they have seven children. They live in their own house with two of their children. Rosa sells food for a living and prepares delicious breakfasts and lunches to the delight of her customers. Her husband helps by attending to the stall in the morning while she goes to the market to buy all the necessary ingredients for her cooking. When she gets back from the market she also attends to customers with kindness, which is her best letter of presentation. Her business is located close to home and to the hospital, so she has a constant flow of customers.

Rosa has been in this business for 21 years and also sells sweets and fruit. Since her job has generated a good profit, she is very satisfied, but also conscious of the fact that her clientele are very demanding in terms of flavor and comfort. Therefore, she is requesting 1,000 PEN to buy wholesale ingredients such as rice, oil, sugar and other groceries that she uses constantly on the job. She will also buy a bigger and better table for her customers. She is committed to paying back the loan on time and is grateful for this opportunity from MFP.
