Rosa De Jesus's story

Rosa, 47, lives in her own house with her husband and her children, ages 13 and 8, who are currently in school. She has a store where she sells basic necessities such as beans, milk, eggs, bread, sugar, and other items.

Rosa has many years of experience in her business, which has given her sales experience that allows her to earn the best profits. Her business is in her home in a town. She's very well known among the neighbors in the area. She has attracted a lot of customers because her store is stocked.

She wants to expand her business and make a new investment. She needs capital, though, so she's requesting a loan so she can buy what she needs for her store. She's certain she'll repay the debt and trusts she'll give her family a better quality of life.
