Rosa Amada's story

Rosa is a responsible, hard-working, and honest person. She lives with her children in the south of Honduras. For more than 18 years, she has had a grocery store.

Rosa needs the loan to buy lard, rice, beans, meat, coffee, bread, eggs, milk, etc. She hopes that with the loan, sales at her business will increase upon having more product to sell and being able to better serve her customers.

Rosa hopes to meet the needs she has and improve the quality of life a little bit for herself and her family. She hopes that in a few years her business will continue to grow and become one of the largest and most well-known grocery stores in the area, and that her children and grandchildren will become good people with better opportunities in society.
