Rosa's story

Rosa, 30, is married and lives in her own house along with her husband and their 2 children. She has a business selling food, juices, and breakfasts. Each day, she gets up very early to go out and sell her juices, including orange juice, papaya juice, and others. The breakfasts she offers for sale include bread with eggs, chicken or cheese. As night approaches, she sells traditional dishes. She does this work on the sidewalk in front of her home. She also has a business selling cleaning products door-to-door. In this way, she can have other income in addition to the income she earns from her main business.

For now, Rosa's main goal is to get established in her food business. To do this, she wants to set up a bigger space in her home where she can do her work with greater tranquility and quality. She now requests 1,000 Peruvian soles, and thanks those who are providing the loan that she needs to keep developing her business. She will continue to be very punctual with her loan payments. With the sum she requests, she will buy ingredients to make juices and breakfasts, such as papayas, pineapples, sugar, and other ingredients.
