A loan of $600 helped to buy cassava, potatoes, flour, condiments, oil, large pots, firewood, and other items..


Rosa Nelly's story

Rosa lives with her 25 year old son and 10 and 15 year old grandchildren. She makes a living selling snacks including fried cassava, potatoes, and meat pastries. She carries out this work on Saturdays and Sundays.

The loan that she is requesting will allow her to buy supplies including cassava, potatoes, oil, flour, condiments, large pots, and firewood. This investment will help her strengthen her business and pay a small debt. Her dreams are to build her own home of cement blocks and for her children to study to become professionals.
