Rosa emigrated to the U.S. from Honduras in 1998. Before starting her own business, Rosa worked as an employee in another restaurant for many years. Rosa decided two years ago that she no longer wanted to be an employee and opened “Mi Rosita Restaurant.”

“Mi Rosita Restaurant” serves specifically Honduran food in a predominantly Hispanic area, which separates it from other local restaurants.

With the help of a $3,150 loan, Rosa can buy new chairs and tables to improve the look of her restaurant and attract more customers. She can also buy an icemaker that would save her the time and capital she spends on buying ice daily.

Rosa hopes to grow her restaurant business and eventually open a new restaurant in order to better support her four sons.
