Rosa Del Carmen's story

Rosa was born in the city of Boaco. She is 32 years old and is married with 4 children. She is a store owner. For the past 17 years, she has earned a living selling cheese and running a small grocery store. She began this business with the support of her mother and gradually became more independent until she had her own business. She sells her products from home. Her plan is to manage her business well so as to promote financial growth. She is requesting the loan to buy products such as: rice, beans, sugar, corn, oil, soap, toothpaste, and other items in order to supply her business with stock and meet the needs of her customers. She believes that when she receives the loan, sales will increase due to the amount of products she offers. Her long term goal is to become a distributor that buys and sells wholesale. Her short term plan is to improve her home's infrastructure.
