Rosa Alvires's story

Doña Rosa, age 43, is a woman who is very hard-working and responsible with both her work and her family. She has had a food stall near the city hall where she lives. She has a large clientele because this is a high-traffic area, because of her kindness, and because of her good prices. She is able to cover her household costs with her income. She lives in her own home with her two children, ages 10 and 22. Rosa is requesting a loan for the purchase of more products like chicken, meat, fruit, vegetables, kitchen utensils, etc. in order to better serve her clients and thus obtain a better income to give her children a better life.
