A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase pastries, sweets, and coffee..


Julia Rosa's story

Julia is 51 years old and lives with her partner in a rural area in the northern part of the department. Several years ago, she began selling in the streets. She has slowly grown her sales to the point that today she has a stand in the main park in her region where she distributes a variety of products such as coffee, pastries, cell phone credits, and sales from catalogs. Julia dreams of expanding her business and having a great assortment to offer her customers, taking advantage of the diversity of the marketplace that is in a central and busy area. She has made this loan application which she will use to buy a range of products (pastries, sweets, coffee) for her business to have a large stock of goods, generating higher profits and improving her quality of life. She would like to help in the upbringing of her grandchildren who are in a difficult economic situation, a social problem that exists in this region.
