A loan of $425 helped to buy materials for the production of sequins and to supply her small kiosk.

Rosaana's story

With only 10 months working this job and the same amount of time running a kiosk in a school, Ms. Rosaana (who also has income from the three rooms that she rents out in her house) does not have enough to sustain the education of her four children (two at university and the others in school) which is why she is constantly investing in two businesses. With the help of her husband, she has formed long-term goals for her four children: to make sure that they reach a good professional career (by financing their basic, secondary, and university level education), for which the labor is difficult and requires more than just effort.

In pursuit of more capital for the purchase of materials for both businesses (which will allow Rosaana to lower her costs and increase her income) she needs this loan of 1300 soles. Considering the leadership she shows as an example for her children, she cannot turn down the work to give them the education they deserve.
