A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizers and soil amendments, and to use the rest of the loan for other businesses that she has.

Rosa Candida's story

Rosa, age 52, doesn’t have a formal education. She is married; her husband works as a day laborer, and also buys and sells cattle. She has two children who help her with her business.

Rosa carries out various jobs such as selling pupusas, making tortillas, running a convenience store, and buying and selling cattle. Previously, she had worked as a seamstress, but she decided to begin these other businesses, which generate more earnings. Her schedule is from eight until seven at night.

She will use the loan to buy fertilizers and soil amendments. Part of it is for the other businesses she has. This will cover her needs and benefit her and her family.

She says that she wants her businesses to prosper and generate greater earnings. She hopes that her family will have everything they need in the future. They will use the earnings to make the loan payments and achieve everything that they set out to do, with the help of God and Credicampo.
