A loan of $875 helped to buy a shelf.


Rosa's story

Rosa, 59, has a 20-year-old son who is studying at university. She makes her living selling sweets and candy in a stall located in the area of Chasquipampa.

This loan is her seventh with this communal bank, Rosa will use the loan to buy a shelf where she can sell her products as the cold season is approaching and this affects her sales as she sometimes doesn't go out to sell, but she will soon have a stall where she can be a little sheltered from the cold. The reason she is seeking this loan is due to a lack of working capital.

Rosa faces challenges in her business such as competition. She will use the profits she makes to save up and buy a home as she is currently renting and she dreams of having a small house to make life a little more comfortable for her family. Rosa is happy and grateful to the communal bank for the opportunity they are giving her.
