Rosa Amelia's story

Rosa is 53 years old, married, and has three beautiful children, aged 12, 15, and 20 years old, who attend school. Her husband and two eldest children help her in her work after class. She makes cups, plates glasses, and similar items out of plastic. She started this business 15 years ago with a loan. Recently, there was a fire in the market where many of her clients sell and she has had difficulties recovering her losses as the shopkeepers who were injured have been unable to pay her. Due to these circumstances, she is asking for this, her third loan request to Afodenic as they offer low interest rates and provide opportunities. She will invest the loan in the infrastructure of her workplace, specifically in extending the roof, in order to improve working conditions. As she is starting from nothing once again, in the long term she plans to be able to produce many more items and obtain better results by enlarging her premises.
