Rosa Milagritos's story

Rosa Milagritos P. B. is 43 years old and lives in Buenos Aires, located in the Trujillo province of La Libertad, Perú.

She is a primary school teacher, however does not pursue her career because she is continuing to work toward her degree. She does not have children.

Rosa runs a “locutorio” (a phone service kiosk where people can come to make calls), having started with one phone. With her earnings, she was able to build a wood cublicle. Over time, she has become well-known and has a good customer base that has allowed her to purchase another cubicle. She runs her business out of her house.

With the first loan of 300.00 Peruvian soles that she received from her cooperative bank “Las Palmeras”, she invested in the purchase of a cubicle.

With the loan of 1,300.00 Peruvian soles, to be repaid in six months, she will invest in making improvements to her establishment.

Rosa has a grand dream of one day having her own nursery school.
