Rosa's story

Señor Rosa is 34 years old. He lives with his wife in their house. He has worked in his business, which is selling seafood, for 10 years. He now buys seafood, such as red fish, white fish, sardines, and shrimp. He sells these products in different villages. He walks from house to house selling, and in this way he has obtained many customers. He makes his sales two days a week as a street vendor.

Don Rosa is applying for a loan to purchase red fish, white fish, sardines, shrimp, etc. With the earnings and the support of this loan, he wants to advance and continue improving his income.

Don Rosa's dream is to have an established business in his own house.
