A loan of $1,200 helped to buy everything she needs to make her foods.


Rosa Audelia's story

Rosa is 57 years old and lives in her own house with her daughter and son-in-law. She makes and sells tamales and pupusas out of her home. She has a lot of customers because she offers good prices and friendly service. With her earnings from her business and her daughter's help, she is able to cover household expenses. Rosa is requesting a loan to buy everything she needs to make her foods, including leaves to wrap her tamales in, corn, pork rinds, fresh cheese, beans, chicken, vegetables, and so on. That way, she can keep selling food and have a better quality of life along with her family.
