A loan of $1,450 helped to purchase rice, sugar, milk, and biscuits.


Rosa Augusta's story

The member Rosa continues working in her grocery store, selling basic food items such as rice, sugar, milk, and biscuits. She also has a business renting rooms. She works from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. She has had her business for 5 years now, and it is going very well for her.

Her dream is to expand her grocery store, and she is requesting a loan in order to purchase rice, sugar, milk, and biscuits.
The member is happy for the loan, and she promises to make her payments.
