A loan of $825 helped to buy a stove and supplies.


Leida Rosa's story

Leida is 40 years old and has been plucky and hard-working since she was young. As a result of her efforts she managed to start her own restaurant, which has allowed her to earn an income to pay for food, clothing and an education for her children.

Leida has many challenges and plans and so has to decided to expand her business. To do this she is applying for a loan to invest in a stove and to buy staple supplies so she can offer a greater range of products and increase sales. By doing this she will be able to improve her and her family's quality of life.
