Rosalba's story

At 56 years of age, Rosa is the mother of three children. She loves her family and says that they are her primary source of motivation to get ahead. For many years she worked in the home of a family as a domestic employee, and then she decided to leave her job and start her own business in order to improve her earnings and spend more time with her family. For the last 7 years she has had a store for special occasions dedicated to selling stuffed toys, chocolates and funeral cards. Thanks to her work, her living conditions have improved considerably. She is currently asking for a loan that she will invest in buying assorted items in order to offer greater variety to her clients.
