Rosa's story

Rosa, 47 years old, is single and does not have children since she has dedicated herself to taking care of her parents and her family. Currently, she lives with her sisters in her parents’ house.

Rosa’s work consists of grocery sales. Every day or every two days she walks to the wholesale market in the city, where she makes the purchases necessary to return to supply her business with the products that have recently run out. She always works with the motto: “treat the customer well, provide what is needed and have everything the customer is searching for so that he always returns.” It is because of this that she does not neglect herself and always is always supplied with everything necessary to sell.

Her business is in her house. She has worked at this for almost four years. She likes her work so much since it allows her to have time to do some other activities in her home. She has many plans for the future but the principal one consists of improving the infrastructure of her store.

This time, she will request 1700 soles to buy merchandise for her business such as milk, condiments, soda, and sugar, among others. Furthermore, she is very committed to completing her payments.
