Rosalinda's story

Rosalinda makes a living selling meals, growing basic grains, and raising cattle. In order to do this work Rosalinda has help from her husband and an employee. Rosalinda starts work at 6am and finishes at 3pm. She has 23 years of experience with this business. Rosalinda started this business with her own initiative and, little by little, it has evolved. Rosalinda is married and lives with her husband and employee; the couple's children are already independent.

Rosalinda will use this loan in order to buy vegetables, oil, propane gas, drinks, salt, sugar, condiments, chicken, cold meats and more, as well as manure, weed-killer, anti-disease treatments, pest control and seeds. These items will allow Rosalinda to improve profitability at her business and to pay off her debt without any problems.

Rosalinda's dream is to continue to work in order to earn the income to be able to eat better and have better health.
