Rosa's story

Rosa is 43 years old, married and has four children, with whom she lives in the house that the family owns. Rosa makes a living selling consumable goods such as rice, bread, eggs, milk, sugar, oil, condiments, cold meats and more. Every day, from very early, Rosa opens the shop doors to tend to all her customers who come looking for products knowing that they will find what they need. Rosa has the best stocked shop in the area, and she sells well-known brands. Rosa remembers that, when she started the business, she did not have many products on offer and, so, she did not have very good sales. This discouraged Rosa but she looked for a solution and, little by little, she worked on her business and now she has very good sales. She has now been working hard with the business for 15 years. On this occasion Rosa is applying for 2000 Nuevo Soles. She is very grateful and happy to know that she can continue to count on the financial support that she needs in order to progress with her business. Rosa will use this loan to buy larger quantities of products such as rice, sugar, bread, milk and eggs. These are the most popular products in Rosa's shop
