A loan of $250 helped to buy cases of beer.


Rosa's story

Rosa is a 58-year-old single mother who lives with her children José 14, and Asunción, 13. She earns her living by selling beer, which she has been doing for the past 12 years to support her family, her main reason for forging ahead. What she likes about her work are the earnings she gets from her sales, as they allow her provide education, food, and everything else her little ones need. Rosa does not find her work difficult, but it is exhausting since she has to spend quite a few hours at a time selling her product. Rosa would like to get ahead, so she requires our support to achieve all of her goals. This will be her first loan with Microfinanzas Prisma. She plans to use the money to purchase more cases of beer in order to increase her income.
